- 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.
- 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.
- The Guernsey Earnings Bulletin monitors average earnings of all employees in the Bailiwick (excluding Sark) and provides breakdowns of average earnings by age, gender and sector.
- 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.
