Data reference periods

Users, uses and context
The data presented here are used by central government departments and local authorities for a range of purposes including planning and monitoring of services and as denominators for the calculation of various rates and indicators.

Rounding applied
Data are provided on an unrounded basis although the Office for National Statistics advises that any results presented from these data are rounded to the nearest 100 where practical.

Revisions information
The data presented here reflect changes made to population estimates from 2001 to 2010 in re-basing the data to be consistent with the results of the 2011 Census (see weblinks).

This data set was revised on the 3rd of May 2016 to correct an error of the age distribution in the council areas of Scotland.

Mid-2012 to mid-2016 subnational population estimates for England and Wales were revised on the 22 March 2018, following methodological improvements (see weblinks).
