More New Data: Population Projections

This post was created automatically via an RSS feed and was originally published at http://www.yorkopendata.org/more-new-data-population-projections/

At York Open Data we are now publishing “Long Term Population Projections”. This data is detailed at sex and single year of age level, for the York Local Authority area.

The published are unrounded estimates, based on ONS estimates designed to enable and encourage further calculations and analysis. However, the estimates should not be taken to be accurate to the level of detail provided. More information on the accuracy of the estimates is available in www.ons.gov.uk/ons/guide-method/method-quality/quality/quality-information/population/index.html

The estimates are produced using a variety of data sources and statistical models, including some statistical disclosure control methods, and small estimates should not be taken to refer to particular individuals. The estimated resident population of an area includes all those people who usually live there, regardless of nationality. Arriving international migrants are included in the usually resident population if they remain in the UK for at least a year. Emigrants are excluded if they remain outside the UK for at least a year. This is consistent with the United Nations definition of a long-term migrant. Armed forces stationed outside of the UK are excluded. Students are taken to be usually resident at their term time address.

The population estimates reflect boundaries in place as of the reference year.

Please note that “age” 999 comprises data for ages 90 and above.
