Jersey today and in the future
The survey asked people to score how Jersey is doing today against 35 different outcomes, with 1 being the lowest score and 7 the highest. A 'don’t know' option was also available for Jersey today. They were then asked what score they would be happy with in the future.

Closing the gap
A key purpose of the survey was to identify the level of change Islanders felt Jersey should be aiming for into the future. This is presented graphically by a dial like the one here.
About the graph
The dial plots the average score for Jersey today against the average score that people would be happy with in the future. In the worst case scenario, Islanders could have scored Jersey’s current progress a 1 and set an ambition of 7.
A brief summary of people’s comments is then provided. Whilst Islanders held positive views about Jersey’s progress on 80% of the outcomes, the focus of this section is on understanding people’s concerns about Jersey today and learning where there might be opportunities to improve in the future. A selection of quotes from the comments received are also included for each outcome, again focused mainly on the concerns raised.
