Households in Jersey are being chosen at random to take part in a cost of living survey with the chance to win £300.

Randomly selected households will get a letter to say they have been chosen to take part in the Jersey Living Costs and Household Income Survey.

The survey will be going on over the next 12 months with around 5,000 households getting involved.

A Statistics Jersey officer will visit the chosen households and explain the survey which takes place every five years.

The results will be used to calculate the Retail Prices Index which is the cost of living in Jersey.

It is used for wage negotiations and rent and benefit increases.

Households taking part will be offered the chance to enter a quarterly prize draw to win £300.
