Emigrant figures since 2021 Census (FOI)Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 12 September 2023.
Prepared internally, no external costs.
Please supply data from Social Security and the Jersey Tax departments, on the number of people who have physically left Jersey since the last Census in 2021.
The information required to answer this request is not held.
There is no single channel by which government comprehensively collects information on people leaving the island, therefore it is not possible to give definitive total numbers of all customers who have told us they are leaving or have left the island.
The Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 does not require a Scheduled Public Authority to manipulate or create new data sets in order to provide a response. Article 10 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 therefore applies.
However, this information in response to a previous Freedom of Information request may be helpful:
`Tell us you are leaving the island’ online form (FOI)
Article 10 - Obligation of scheduled public authority to confirm or deny holding Information
(1) Subject to paragraph (2), if –
(a) a person makes a request for information to a scheduled public authority; and
(b) the authority does not hold the information, it must inform the applicant accordingly.
