Jersey Children and Young People’s Survey 2019

Aug 11, 2020

The 2019 Jersey Children and Young People’s Survey report has been released today by Statistics Jersey.

Every Jersey child in school Years 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 was given the opportunity to take part in the survey during school time in the Autumn Term of 2019 (that is, before the global COVID 19 pandemic). The survey was run independently by Statistics Jersey, with a range of stakeholders across government requesting specific topic areas to be included. 

The school survey covered a wide-range of topics including 

  • home and family life
  • wellbeing and self-esteem
  • health
  • alcohol
  • smoking
  • drugs
  • diet
  • physical activity
  • sex
  • crime and child sexual exploitation
  • bullying
  • being heard
  • leisure activities
  • active transport

Some sections (e.g. drugs and sex) were not included, or were amended, for the younger children’s versions of the questionnaire.

The survey has been run every four years since 1998, enabling changes in behaviours and attitudes to be monitored over time. Previous versions of the report were titled the ‘Health Related Behaviour Questionnaire’ and the ‘Jersey School Survey’. The results from the survey will allow everyone in the Island to better understand life from a child’s perspective, and help in the decision-making of those providing services to children.
