Facts and Figures brings you local information, data and statistics about the Borough of Basingstoke and Deane; about the area as a whole and about its wards and parishes.
Latest population and household estimates
2013 Mid-Year Population Estimates: the Office for National Statistics (ONS) releases population estimates for each local authority in England and Wales, by age and sex, annually, approximately one year in arrears.
The latest Mid-Year Estimates therefore relate to Mid-2013, having been published by ONS on 26 June 2014. The estimated resident population of Basingstoke and Deane at Mid-2013 is 171,900, representing an increase of roughly 1,400 people over the year from Mid-2012, and more than 4,000 since the 2011 Census.
Further information, including methodology and comparative data for other local authorities, can be accessed on the ONS website at: 2013 MYE
Population and household data are sometimes used as a denominators for calculating performance indicators.
When calculating a "rate per head of population" (all ages), the figure of 171,900 should be used as the borough population for 2013 (Source: 2013 Mid-Year Population Estimates for England and Wales, ONS);
For "rate per household" a household figure of 70,300 should be used for 2012, and 70,600 for 2013 (Source: Projected from 2011 Census figure using rounded actual net dwelling completions).
Much of the output from the 2011 Census has now been published.
