These estimates are derived using the cohort-component method where Census-based estimates are updated annually by ageing on and applying information on births, deaths and migration. Births and deaths are estimated using data from the civil registration system. Migration is derived from three main sources: the National Health Service Central Register (NHSCR) and Community Health Index (CHI) for migration within the UK, and from the International Passenger Survey (IPS) for international migration.
This is a linked data resource: it has a permanent unique uri at which both humans and machines can find it on the Internet, and which can be used an identifier in queries on our SPARQL endpoint.
Linked Data is stored in graphs. We keep dataset contents (the data) separately from the metadata, to make it easier for you to find exactly what you need.
