Frequency of publication

Data reference periods
Data are produced and reported annually and relate to the 30 June of each year for 2001 onwards.

Users, uses and context
The data presented here are used by central government departments and National Park 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 2002 to 2010 in re-basing the data to be consistent with the results of the 2011 Census (see weblinks).

The ONS published revised mid-2012 to mid-2016 estimates of the population on 22 March 2018 due to methodological improvements. Therefore the figures for mid-2012 to mid-2016 within the statswales cube have been revised.
