We are interested in knowing the numbers of care home residents and then either all population or the non-care home residents:
- for England (country),
- yearly, between 2000 and 2015,
- by Age and gender, where age is needed in the broad groups 65-74, 75-84, and 85 and above
Thank you for your request for information on the numbers of care home residents (and then either the population total or the number of non-care home residents) by age/gender, in England, for each year between 2000 and 2015.
We do not have the information for all the years you have requested.
We do publish mid-year population estimates for all the years you have requested; https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/populationandmigration/populationestimates/datasets/populationestimatesforukenglandandwalesscotlandandnorthernireland
These will give a total population for England but do not show residential status. A methodology document which lays out how we produce these statistics is available from our website;
We have published information on care homes from the 2001 and 2011 Censuses. You can use the tables mentioned in the report (below) to get figures for England rather than for England and Wales:
