Jersey population

Mark Boleat has a specific interest in population trends and policy in Jersey, this originally stemming from being asked to chair a government working party on population policy in 1996.

He has undertaken a detailed study of the history of the Jersey population, covering census reports, historical studies and other relevant data.  His most recent report Jersey’s Population – A History, which includes data from the 2011 census, was published in 2015.

The Resource Centre includes a number of other papers of the history of the Jersey population and on population policy.

While the Family History page is predominantly about the Boleat family specifically, some of the papers are relevant to the economic history of Jersey.
