About this Dataset

The mid-year estimates refer to the population on 30 June of the reference year and are produced in line with the standard United Nations (UN) definition for population estimates. They are the official set of population estimates for the UK and its constituent countries, the regions and counties of England, and local authorities and their equivalents.

Nodiadau pwysig a gwybodaeth ynghylch defnyddio

Estimates for UK, Great Britain and Scotland for mid-2012 to mid-2021 have not been rebased in line with the 2021 censuses in England & Wales and Northern Ireland or the 2022 Census in Scotland. These time series will be updated once revised data is available. Mid-year population estimates relate to the usually-resident population. They account for long-term international migrants (people who change their country of usual residence for a period of 12 months or more) but do not account for short-term migrants (people who come to or leave the country for a period of less than 12 months).

This approach is consistent with the standard United Nations definition for population estimates which is based upon the concept of usual residence and includes people who reside, or intend to reside, in the country for at least twelve months, whatever their nationality.
