Population dipped in 2017

Posted Tue 3rd July 2018 at 13:49

The population dipped by 15 people last year bringing the total number of people on Alderney to 1,985.

Deaths outnumbered births by 12 and the number of people emigrating from the Island was three more than the tally that moved to the Island.

It means the total population has decreased around six per cent from 2011, when the Census showed there were 2,090 people living on Alderney.

The figures were harvested from seven States of Guernsey government departments including Social Security and cover the period from March 2016 to March 2017.

They provide a snapshot of Alderney's demographics, housing situation, employment and earnings.

Worryingly, the rolling electronic census figures show that in addition to the downturn in population, the proportion of people of working age continues to fall, while those of 65 plus continue to increase. In 2011 the number of people on the Island who are of working age has dropped from 1,295 to 1,085 - from 11.4 per cent to 9.6 per cent of the population.

The proportion of people in the 65-84 age group rose from 505 in 2011 to 607 in 2017 - going up proportionally from 23.9 per cent to 30.6 per cent.
