Data for different geographies is updated at different times. If data is not shown for the geographies you require, try an earlier year.

Estimates for mid-2012 to mid-2016 have been revised. Methodological improvements have been implemented allowing the creation of a new series of estimates that roll forward the 2011 Census. These revised figures include new estimates of local authority international emigration and foreign armed forces dependants.

Estimate is the population as at June 30 (mid year). The estimated resident population of an area includes all people who usually live there, whatever their nationality. People arriving into an area from outside the UK are only included in the population estimates if their total stay in the UK is 12 months or more. Visitors and short-term migrants (those who enter the UK for 3 to 12 months for certain purposes) are not included. Similarly, people who leave the UK are only excluded from the population estimates if they remain outside the UK for 12 months or more. This is consistent with the United Nations recommended definition of an international long-term migrant. Members of UK and non-UK armed forces stationed in the UK are included in the population and UK forces stationed outside the UK are excluded. Students are taken to be resident at their term time address.
