  • Population estimates for health geographies, parliamentary constituencies and electoral wards for mid-2002 to mid-2010 have been revised following the 2011 Census.

  • The revised series allows an understanding of how populations have changed across the decade in these small areas. An example of the type of analysis that is possible is shown in the statistical bulletin for revised mid-2002 to mid-2010 Super Output Areas.

  • NHS Tower Hamlets, NHS North Manchester and NHS Newham had the largest percentage increases in population between mid-2002 and mid-2011 (23.7%, 23.2% and 21.6% respectively).

  • The two parliamentary constituencies with the largest percentage population increase were Manchester Central (30.7%) and Poplar and Limehouse (30.2%).

  • Forty four per cent of wards saw population growth of more than 5% between mid-2002 and mid-2011.

  • These small area estimates are particularly important for central government and local government for the planning and monitoring of services, as well as providing detailed information on the population of small local areas for parliamentary organisations, researchers and MPs, academics and commercial organisations.
