New 11 Districts (LGD2014)
By 2015 the number of Local Government Districts will be reduced from 26 to 11 due to the Local Government reform. Provisional population statistics for mid-2011 and mid-2012 were published on the 24th September 2013. These provisional statistics were calculated from the 2011 Census.
Final official population estimates for the new 11 Districts (2001 to 2012) will be released as part of the update of the Small Area Population Estimates. These will be published on 27 March 2014.
More information on how the statistics for the 11 Districts can be calculated, including a technical guidance report and a look-up table are available under the Lookup Tables section on our geography page.
