Notices

27 April 2016

We published corrected UK population estimates for the years 2012 to 2014 incorporating corrected estimates for Scotland on 28 April 2016.

They address the previously announced error of the age distribution in the council areas of Scotland presented in the last release published 25 June 2015.  These errors only affect areas within Scotland; population estimates for England, Wales and Northern Ireland are unaffected. Whilst the estimated age distribution of the UK population is affected for the period, the total estimates of the UK population remain valid. Further information on the causes of the errors, their impact and how decisions were reached on the approach taken is available in the Quality Management Information document available on the ONS website.

26 September 2016

Mid-2015 population estimates for areas within Northern Ireland will be published Thursday 6 October at 09.30

22 March 2018

Population estimates for areas within England and Wales for mid-2012 to mid-2016, released prior to 22nd March 2018, have been superseded. The revisions incorporate improved methods for international emigration at the local authority, previously unavailable data for international immigration at the local authority level and improvements to our accounting of the dependents of foreign armed forces personnel.
