Immigration control should be the government's main priority, according to the States' annual social survey.

Around 1,600 people replied to the questionnaire about islanders' lifestyles and views.

More than 60% of adults asked felt the government should make controlling immigration a top priority.

The survey also found one in four families struggle with household finances.

A tenth of households sometimes go without a daily hot meal because of money shortages while just over a quarter of people grow some of their own vegetables.

The States uses the results of the survey to plan policy.
