Mid-year population estimates – age distribution errors
We have recently been made aware of errors mainly affecting the age distribution of the mid-year population estimates for Scotland for the years 2002 to 2014. These errors only affect areas within Scotland; population estimates for England, Wales and Northern Ireland are unaffected. ONS have published Frequently Asked Questions (158.6 Kb Pdf) that provide further information on the errors.
ONS plans to publish corrected UK population estimates for the years 2012 to 2014 incorporating corrected estimates for Scotland in April 2016.
