What is this about?

This data is collected using the Jersey Opinions and Lifestyle Survey, which surveys a representative sample of adults in Jersey. Respondents are asked ‘How do you rate the range of cultural events, attractions and activities available in Jersey?', and can answer: very good; good; poor; or, very poor. The indicator is calculated by adding the number of very good and good responses, and dividing by the total responses.

Overall, 73% of adults rated Jersey’s cultural events, attractions and activities as good (58%) or very good (15%) in 2019. This is significantly lower than the proportion of Islanders rating either social and recreational (89%) or sporting events, attractions and activities (84%) as good or very good. Perceptions have remained unchanged since 2013.

Young people were less likely to rate the existing cultural offer as highly as older people and only 52% of people aged 16 to 34 years rated it as good or very good, compared to 83% of people aged 65+ years.
