1. The latest mid-year population estimates for the UK are for 2010 and provide detail by age and sex but not ethnic group.
2010 based Population Projections for the UK are available. These provide detail by age and sex but not ethnic group.
ONS publishes experimental Population Estimates by Ethnic Group which are consistent with the mid-year population estimates, but are produced for areas in England and Wales only (rather than the UK as a whole) and the latest estimates available are for 2009.
Overview of other population data ONS publishes is available.
Though not published as population estimates, the results of the Annual Population Survey (which is conducted throughout the UK) provide information on the ethnic group characteristics of the achieved sample. These figures are not published on the ONS website but are attached as an Excel file.

The attached excel spreadsheet contains the number of deaths from Alzheimer's disease and dementia.
Table 1: Number of deaths where Alzheimer's disease or dementia was the underlying cause of death, by sex and age group, England and Wales, 2001-2010.
Table 2: Number of deaths where Alzheimer's disease or dementia was the underlying cause of death, by sex and age group, for the specified unitary authorities, 2001-2010
ONS mortality data comes from the information collected at death registration. All of the conditions mentioned on the death certificate are coded using the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision (ICD-10). From all of these causes an underlying cause of death is selected using ICD-10 coding rules. The underlying cause of death is defined by WHO as:
a) the disease or injury that initiated the train of events directly leading to death, or
b) the circumstances of the accident or violence that produced the fatal injury
This data has been extracted using ICD-10 codes F01 and F03 'Dementia' and G30 'Alzheimer's disease', where one of these causes was recorded as the underlying cause of death.
The ethnicity of the deceased is not recorded at death registration, so we are unable to provide any mortality statistics broken down by ethnicity.
