The States of Jersey Statistics Unit has today (28th April) released its annual compendium of statistics, Jersey in Figures 2009.

Jersey in Figures presents key economic and social information about the Island within a single source. It includes key data produced by a range of States Departments and official organisations alongside the data published by the States of Jersey Statistics Unit.

Jersey in Figures presents up-to-date figures and text on, for example, education, health, crime, transport, tourism, agriculture, national income and public accounts, prices and earnings, the finance sector, employment and the economy.

It is hoped that the pocket-sized booklet will continue to form a convenient and clear reference for the public and visitors to the Island, as well as private institutions and businesses.

Comments about the content and future direction of Jersey in Figures are welcome and please send to Marguerite Clarke in the Statistics Unit ( tel 440426). Please also contact Marguerite should you require additional copies.

Jersey in Figures is available on the Statistics Unit web site . Hard copies will be available from the Statistics Unit.
