2017 Mid Year Population Estimates for Northern Ireland (NEW FORMAT TABLES)

Date published: 28 June 2018


The statistics for 2012-2020 have been revised following the release of the Census 2021 results. More information can be found in the Mid-Year Population Estimates for Northern Ireland Rebased (2011-21) publication.

This page contains the new format tables for the mid-year population estimates. They have been designed to be more user friendly by providing all of the information for each geography in one place.  In addition, each file provides the data in both flat file format and tabular format.

We are keen to understand the user experience of these new format tables so if you have any comments or suggestions, please email us at census@nisra.gov.uk quoting "MYEs new format tables".  (please note that these files require Excel 2012 or later)
