Number of dwelling fires per 1,000 population
What is this about?
This indicator combines records from the States of Jersey Fire and Rescue Service on the number of dwelling fires in Jersey with demographic data to produce a rate per 1,000 population. It is of particular interest because, as a general trend, the rate of dwelling fires in Jersey has been increasing over the last decade, in contrast to England, Scotland and Wales where it has declined year-on-year for 20 years.
Please note that from 2015 the mid year population estimates (from the Population & Migration Statistics Report 2011-2021) have been used to calculate this measure.
