Population Estimates - Persons aged 85 and over
The ageing of the population has led to increased demand for more detailed population
estimates of older people. NISRA have used an internationally recognised methodology
to produce detailed estimates of the numbers of people aged 85 and over by sex and age.
Please note: The survivorship rate methodology used in these estimates mean that there are minor differences for the period 2001 to 2012 compared to previous years' estimates. Differences may also in part be due to rebasing the population estimates.
