THE official estimate of Jersey’s current population is due to be released this week.
When the last estimate was issued in 2015, the States Statistics Unit put the Island’s population at 102,700.
The figures revealed that the population had increased by 11,700 since 2005.
The increase was driven largely by net migration – the difference between the number of people leaving Jersey and the number moving here.
During 2015, it was estimated that the population increased by 1,700 - about 1,500 from net migration and about 200 from natural growth.
The current estimate is due to be released on Friday.Subscribe to our Newsletter
