Population, employment and earnings

Share this page

On this page you can download the latest information on population, employment, unemployment and earnings.

The latest bulletins are available to download on the right-hand side of this page.

  • Population

    • The Electronic Census Report replaced the Annual Population Bulletin in 2015. It is published annually and contains a comprehensive collection of population snapshots and trends derived from administrative sources along with projections provided by the UK Government Actuaries Department. A Quarterly Population Bulletin is also published, providing updates of headline figures and trends between the annual Reports.
    • The last census in Guernsey was held on 29th April 2001. A reliable method for counting the population using administrative records was developed in 2006 and has subsequently been developed upon via the Rolling Electronic Census Project.
    • As a result of the Project, comprehensive Guernsey population statistics are available more frequently than in other jurisdictions and at a lower cost. The first collection of information, which was published in the Electronic Census Report in March 2015, includes a breakdown of population by parish, school catchment and voting district along with a host of other information in addition to regular updates to population trends.
  • Employment

    • The Labour Market Bulletin, provides an overview of Guernsey's labour market. It provides data on numbers in employment, employment by sector, employment by gender, unemployment and numbers of employers.
    • It is compiled using information from the States of Guernsey Social Security Department on contributions and claimants and can be downloaded on the right of this page.​
  • Earnings

    • Guernsey Earnings Bulletin. This bulletin monitors average earnings of all employees in the Bailiwick (excluding Sark) and provides breakdowns of average earnings by age, gender and sector. To download the bulletin, see the link to the right.
    • The data are supplied by the Social Security Department and include only employed individuals. The averages reported relate to individuals (not households) and include full and part-time workers, so the trends can be affected by the number of hours worked as well as rate of pay. Only income from primary employment is included. Incomes from self-employment, secondary employments and other non-earned sources are not included. This provides a measure of the underlying trend and change in earnings.
