About this article

This report assesses the accuracy of the Subnational Population Projections (SNPPs) that are produced by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) for local authorities in England. The projected population for 2011 from several sets of projections are compared with the Mid-year Population estimates for 2011. The impacts of rebasing and revisions that occurred following the 2011 Census and methodological improvements that have taken place since are also considered.
