Jersey people spend 43% more than UK average
People in Jersey spent an average of 43% more per person than those in the UK last year, a new study shows.
The figures come from the five-yearly Jersey household spending report by the States of Jersey.
It took a year to gather information for the report, which looks at how much households spend on everything from eating out to education.
On average Jersey households spent £761 per week with more than a quarter going on housing, fuel and power.
UK households meanwhile spent an average £532 per week.
