The States of Guernsey carried out a survey to find out which aspects of life are different now compared with before the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown (specifically in relation to travelling and shopping).
The survey is now closed. It ran from 3rd September to 14th October 2021 and 1,500 responses were received. These are now being analysed.
This survey asked about wellbeing and household circumstances and if/how these changed since 2019. It asked respondents to rate their life satisfaction and tell us how they felt about some specific topics, including travelling and shopping. It also sought to find out how peoples expenditure patterns have changed; information which will be used when the weights for the Retail Price Indices are updated at the end of this year.
The results will be published before the end of the year, so they can be used by decision makers across the Islands.
The 2020 survey, which was completed by over 3,600 people, asked about the community's experiences throughout lockdown (both positive and negative) and how this impacted on wellbeing. The survey closed on 30th July 2020 and the results were published later in 2020 on www.gov.gg/covid19data. This survey repeats some of the questions from the one last year to enable comparisons to be made.
