2011 Data Zone based Special Area Population Estimates

2011 Data Zone based Special Area Population Estimates

Background

Population estimates for various special areas can be accessed using the links below. Estimates for the special areas are built up using the 2011 Data Zone level Small Area Population Estimates. 2011 Data Zones do not always fit exactly into the boundaries of other geographical areas, so they are allocated on a best-fit basis. An evaluation of non-standard geography population estimates has been carried out to assess special area population estimates built up in this way.

Mid-year population estimates - age distribution errors

We have corrected the errors in the mid-year Small Area Population Estimates (2011 Data Zone based) for mid-2012, mid-2013 and mid-2014, which are published alongside the most recent mid-2015 population estimates. Full details of the errors can be found in the Population section of this website.
