Thank you for your Freedom of Information request asking for the age breakdown of the population of Birmingham.

We publish mid-year population estimates by single year of age, the latest of which are for mid-2018. Once you have downloaded the excel file from the website, you will find Birmingham on row 160 of the worksheet MYE2-ALL.

While we have no specific data about the Bullring and Grand Central shopping complex, to get population data at lower levels than Birmingham go to the Nomis website, click on 'Query Data' in the 'Data Downloads' box, then on 'Population Estimates/Projections – Population estimates – small area based by single year of age', then 'Geography', then '2011 output areas' (OAs). Then there is a menu of local authorities (starting with Adur). Select Birmingham, then tick 'Use maps to select areas' and this will allow you to zoom in on the areas around the Bullring and Grand Central and select the OAs in which you are interested. Once you have selected the OAs, you can then make any other selections and then 'Get your data;' from the box on the left hand side of the screen.

When accessing any of our files please read the 'notes, terms and conditions' contained within them.

Please do not hesitate to contact us directly on if you require anything further.
