  • Press Release - Alderney Electronic Census Report

    Thursday 14 June 2018

    For immediate release: 14th June 2018

    The annual Alderney Electronic Census Report is published today. It includes information on population demographics, migration, economic status, average earnings and property ownership. This year, for the first time, it also includes Gross Value Added (GVA) estimates - the increase in value of the economy due to the production of goods and services - for Alderney, which are calculated using the same method as implemented in Guernsey in 2017.

    Colin Vaudin, Chief Information Officer of the States of Guernsey said "Wherever possible, the Data & Analysis team in Guernsey provide official statistics for both Alderney and Guernsey. The picture and trends can be quite different between the two Islands, so there is real value in providing the figures separately. The report provides a broad information base, which I hope will be useful for policy formulation and decision making."

    Chris Brock, Director of Business Development for the States of Alderney, said "The production of these annual statistics are very important indeed particularly in terms of identifying economic and social trends in Alderney over time. While the majority of figures relate to the year ended March 2017, there are some encouraging employment results which cover the year ended December 2017. These show overall employment numbers increasing by 32 over the previous December which is equivalent to a 4% growth".

    The report is available at the bottom of this article.

  • Press Release - Consultation on Possible Changes to Organ Donation

    Monday 04 June 2018

    For immediate release: 4th June 2018

    The States of Alderney are wishing to consult you about the possible changes to organ donation in the event that the States of Guernsey decides to implement a "soft opt-out" system. The attached consultation note sets out the issue and some key questions for consideration.

    In debating this matter, members of the States of Alderney, were clear that the circumstances in which organ donation can happen are, and would continue to be, very limited. In reality, the changes would impact on organ donations of Alderney people who die in Guernsey, the UK and elsewhere rather than people who die in Alderney. However, Alderney people will continue to benefit from organ donations in the future and in those circumstances it may be reasonable to consider a change if a "soft opt-in" system is introduced in Guernsey.

    Closing date for this consultation is 5th July 2018. Please respond in writing to:
