The 2022 report on the Jersey Opinions and Lifestyle Survey has been released today by Statistics Jersey.
The survey collects detailed information on a wide range of topics on an annual basis, particularly the opinions and behaviours of the resident population. It provides everyone in the Island with a better understanding of social issues in Jersey, primarily so that policy decisions can be made from a more informed standpoint.
The survey is a cross-departmental project. Individual departments ask for topics to be included to meet their priorities, whilst Statistics Jersey independently runs the survey, undertakes the analysis and publishes the results. This approach reduces the number of times households are contacted for information and is a less costly way of collecting data. It also provides a richer dataset to allow more interesting and informative analysis.
Almost 1,200 Islanders completed a survey questionnaire and topics covered this year include:
- Personal finances
- Living in Jersey
- Getting involved
- Heritage and conservation
- Crime and policing
- Digital connectivity
