Projected total population
- For all authorities projected population is higher at mid-2026 based on the ‘high variant’ and lower based on the ‘low variant’ than based on the principal projection.
- Differences between the ‘high variant’ and principal projection for local authorities are around 1,300 on average, and between the ‘low variant’ and the principal projection around 2,000 at mid-2026.
- For most authorities projected population at mid-2026 is higher based on the ten-year average migration variant than based on the principal projection, which used a five-year average.
Projected population by age
- For some authorities there would be an increase in the population aged 0 to 15 between mid-2011 and mid-2026 based on the ‘high variant’, but a decrease if based on the ‘low variant’.
- The population aged 65 and over is projected to increase by mid-2026 for all local authorities based on both the principal projection and the other variants.
- Similarly the population aged 85 and over is projected to increase by mid-2026 for all local authorities based on both the principal projection and the other variants.
The release was revised on 20 December 2013 to correct a minor error in the ten-year average migration variant projection for each local authority. As a result the overall projected population by local authority is slightly lower than previously published for the ten-year average migration variant. The principal projection and other variant projections are unaffected.
