National Population Projections

Projected future population of Northern Ireland by age and sex

Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency (NISRA) along with the Office for National Statistics (ONS), National Records of Scotland (NRS) and the Welsh Government are consulting on the timescales for future population projections.  An update has been published on the ONS website after the recent user engagement, and a summary report on the responses is planned for publication in early 2021. The feedback received will help determine the best route forward on the publication of the next set of projections.
