Recently Published - Population Estimates 2001-2012
As of 26th June 2013:
Revised Small Area Population Estimates for the period 2001-2010, as well as new estimates for both mid-2011 and mid-2012, will be published by the end of March 2014.
Small area population estimates relate to mid-2010 for Super Output Areas, Electoral Wards, District Electoral Areas and Neighbourhood Renewal Areas. The latest statistics for Output Areas and Settlements relate to mid-2008.
Small Areas (SAs) have been introduced in Northern Ireland after the 2011 Census. The majority (83%) of 2011 SAs have been kept identical to the 2001 COAs to ensure comparability over time, however in some cases this was not possible. More information on this can be found here
SAs can be merged to generate the 2011 Super Output Areas (SOAs). Where possible, the 2011 SOAs have been kept identical to the 2001 SOAs. However, six of the 2001 SOAs were affected. For more information, please find further details and the background paper on this issue here
2011 Census Key Statistics for Assembly Area, Ward, Super Output Area and Small Areas were published at 9:30am on 30 January 2013. All of the published 2011 Census results can be found on the NINIS Census Statistics page here
