Projected indicators included are derived from the published 2018-based subnational population projections for England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland up to the year 2043. The indicators are the projected sex ratio for those aged 65 years and over and the projected sex ratio for those aged 85 years and over. A sex ratio shows the number of males in the population for every 100 females.
This dataset has been produced by the Ageing Analysis Team for inclusion in a subnational ageing tool, which will be published in July 2020. The tool will be interactive, and users will be able to compare latest and projected measures of ageing for up to four different areas through selection on a map or from a drop-down menu.
Note on data sources: England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland independently publish subnational population projections and the data available here are a compilation of these datasets. The ONS also publish national data for the UK, England and England & Wales, which has also been included.
