Annual population estimates for the UK and its constituent countries, the regions and counties of England, and local authorities and their equivalents. Estimates for lower and middle layer Super Output Areas, Westminster parliamentary constituencies, electoral wards and National Parks in England and Wales and clinical commissioning groups in England.

Estimates of the usual resident population as at 30 June 2016. This release includes national and subnational population estimates for England and Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. Presented as available by administrative area, single year of age, sex and components of population change. This statistical bulletin covers both the UK mid-year population estimates for 2016 and the mid-2016 internal migration estimates for England and Wales.
We look at the first release of unrounded results from the 2011 Census, providing information about the usually resident population of England and Wales. Further analysis is given by age, sex, the number of households and the number of short-term residents. New interactive maps provide specific views on population, household density, the change in population and the number of households between 2001 and 2011.
With an increasingly mobile society there is a need for population statistics to not only look at where people usually live, but to also look at a range of other alternatives. We examine the out of term population (where students and school children are recorded at their “home” address). Analyses are by age, sex and geographical breakdown.
The 2011 Census provides information on the population in England and Wales based on different population bases, including resident population, workplace population and workday population. This report presents the characteristics of the workplace population in the local authorities of England and Wales. The workplace population in a local authority is defined as the population whose usual place of work is in that local authority, including both individuals who live and work in the local authority and individuals who work in the local authority but commute from a home elsewhere within England or Wales.
We look at the differences in labour market statistics between the 2011 Census and the Labour Force Survey (LFS). Reasons for these differences include; coverage and data issues, coding and classification differences and the self-completion nature of the Census. The Census was found to estimate a higher number of people who were either in employment or actively seeking work, than the LFS, with most of the differences relating to the number of women in the labour market.
