- Statistics & Research
An annual report on population estimates by local authority.
- As at 30 June 2013 the population estimate for Wales was around 3,082,400, an increase of around 8,300 or 0.27 per cent since mid-2012.
- Between mid-2012 and mid-2013 the population aged 65 and over increased by over 14,000 (or 2.5 per cent) whilst the population aged 16 to 64 decreased by nearly 5,000 (or 0.3 per cent).
- The largest five-year age groups in Wales are the 20-24, 40-44, 45-49 and 50-54 age bands.
- Most of the total change in population was due to net international migration rather than natural change (births minus deaths), whilst there was a net migration flow from Wales to the rest of the UK.
- Most local authorities in Wales saw an increase in population between mid-2012 and mid-2013, but there were decreases for some.
