Mid Year Estimates of the Population, 2007
Statistics on 2007 mid-year population estimates include data for Wales, England, Scotland and Northern Ireland for the period up to the end of June 2007. The latest release updates the statistics previously released on 22 August 2007.
The key points from the latest release are:
- As at 30th June 2007 there were 2,980,000 people resident in Wales. This is an increase of 14,100 on mid-2006 (0.5 per cent increase), slightly higher than the previous annual increase (12,300, or 0.4 per cent, between mid-2005 and mid-2006);
- Population growth from 2001 onwards has generally been higher than in the 1990s, with population growth in the period 1991-2000 ranging from 0.0 per cent to 0.2 per cent;
- In the twelve months to mid-2007, natural change (births less deaths) stood at around 2,300. This compares with 1,900 for the twelve months ending mid-2006, and -300 for the twelve months ending mid-2005.
- Migration and other changes provided a net addition to the population of 11,800 in the period mid-2006 to mid-2007. This compares to 10,500 for the previous twelve months.
- Most local authorities showed a decrease in the number of children aged 0-15 between mid-2006 and mid-2007, ranging from a 0.1 per cent decrease in Wrexham and Bridgend to a 2.4 per cent decrease in Blaenau Gwent. However, the number of children aged under 5 in Wales increased by 2.2 per cent between mid-2006 and mid-2007, and all local authorities saw an increase.
The 2002-2008 mid year estimates were revised in May 2010 as part of ONS’ programme on improving population and migration estimates (IMPS).
This output is based on the unrevised population and migration data and therefore should be treated with caution.
More information on IMPS can be accessed through the related links section.
