Mid-year population estimates - age distribution errors - 1 October 2015

We have recently become aware of errors mainly affecting the age distribution of the mid-year population estimates for 2002 to 2014. This is because of an issue with an input data set used in the calculation of the mid-year estimates, as well as minor unrelated processing errors. These errors in the mid-year estimates may have a small effect on the life expectancy estimates, but the difference should be within the confidence intervals around the life expectancy estimates. Full details of the errors in the mid-year population estimates can be found in the Population section of this website.
