Population and household estimates

These first results from Census 2021 provide the usually resident population of Northern Ireland on census day broken down by age and sex, along with information on the number of households.

The population estimates in the 24 May 2022 release were published rounded to the nearest 100 because at that time the dataset was still being subjected to a number of final statistical procedures. The statistics in ‘Census 2021 main statistics for Northern Ireland (phase 1)’ reflect the final database.
