Over a period of six weeks in June and July 2016, nearly 4,150 Islanders took part in the My Jersey survey in one of Jersey’s biggest public consultations.
The survey asked Islanders to tell us what they think of Jersey now and their hopes for the future. Respondents scored Jersey today across a range of economic, environmental and community outcomes, identified the level of change they would like to see in the future and added nearly 8,000 comments.
Overall, the survey painted an encouraging picture of Jersey but respondents were concerned about being able to independently afford a decent standard of living.
Community safety, health care, and giving children the best start in life came out high in people’s future aspirations, and protecting the beauty of Jersey's natural environment and our air and water quality scored highly.
Here are the results.
The choices we make now will affect all of us in the future. We want as many people as possible to share their expectations for Jersey as a place to live, work and do business. Future Jersey is the last chance to add your voice.Find out more >
