This report presents the results of the 2021 Health, Activity and Well-being Survey. This anonymous survey has been run to help paint a picture of island life.
The survey is run by the Government of Jersey Public Health Directorate in partnership with Jersey Sport and collects information on a range of health and well-being topics affecting Islanders. The responses help to give an in-depth picture of the health, activity levels, and general well-being of Islanders today. Survey responses will help to shape public health policies and prioritise initiatives during the COVID-19 recovery phase, such as helping inform how money is invested in sports and exercise on-Island. The insights generated from the responses will help ensure that decisions made by Government of Jersey can be made from a more informed standpoint.
Questions were included to gauge the impact of COVID-19 on Islanders, as well as questions that have regularly been asked in previous social surveys on:
- mental health and wellbeing
- general health
- health-related behaviours (such as smoking, drinking and food & diet)
- money matters
