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.

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 intention is to report economic status information in a separate quarterly report from July 2015 onwards (replacing the current Labour Market Bulletin, which contains information on employment and unemployment up to and including December 2014).

Information on the Island's housing stock, which was previously collected via census is now available from alternative sources and is published annually in the Guernsey Annual Housing Bulletin.

Paper copies of older census reports, which were published by Her Majesty's Stationery Office in the UK, are available to view at the Island Archivesthe Guille Alles Library or the Priaulx Library.
