Archive News

At the end of June 2020 there were a total of 144,140 (45% of all working age) people on either Universal Credit, JobSeekers Allowance or a government income support scheme (furlough or self-employed scheme) in East Sussex. A new briefing on unemployment is now available.

The population of East Sussex increased to 557,229 in mid-2019.  Although there were more deaths than births in the country, the population rose due to migration, mainly from within the UK.  A new population briefing is now available.

Although there were a considerably lower number of fatalities on the county’s roads in 2019 compared to the previous year, there was a significant rise in the number of serious injuries recorded.

There were 35,082 crimes recorded in the county in 2018/19, a 1.7% rise on the previous year, but this was much lower than the national increase of 7.9%. Violence and weapons offences saw the biggest increases.

ESiF now has some new tables with data from the county’s community survey 2017, including data on community, loneliness and sexual orientation.
