Population estimates

Mid year population estimates are produced annually by the Office for National Statistics (ONS), for the county and districts. Based on these figures, population estimates are then produced for district wards and parishes.

Population estimates analysis tool

The Office for National Statistics have developed an Excel tool to create a population pyramid for each District in Nottinghamshire based on the 2013 mid-year estimates, which also has a pivot table showing the estimated components of population change within each District between 2012 and 2013. See the ONS website for further details.
