What defines the Digital Sector?
The definition used in this release was developed by Digital Jersey, drawing from analysis done by the OECD using the UN Standard Industrial Classifications (SICs) along with UK Office for National Statistics (ONS). Digital Jersey’s definition differs from the UK in that it includes e-commerce and advertising agencies, as sectors dependent on technology.
These estimates have been produced using Population Office sources (Manpower returns) from identified digital businesses by SIC classification.
Please see below the assigned standard industrial classifications of all sub-sectors Jersey includes in its definition of the digital sector.

We will communicate with Islanders about our progress and the actions we are undertaking on a regular basis, and we want to be held up to the goals and targets we have set out here.
