Dwelling forecasts

The Research and Performance team produces population and dwelling stock forecasts for Cambridgeshire and its districts. Forecasts are for the years 2016, 2021, 2026, 2031 and 2036.

As always they are based on sets of assumptions. Dwelling forecasts are guided by development plans around the county and our population forecasts are 'dwellings led', meaning that population is limited, but not solely determined by, growths in dwelling stock. Therefore dwelling forecasts are a crucial component of our forecasting methodology. To understand the forecasting method and changes that may have occurred please read the methodology paper.

Data from the 2011 Census is gradually being disseminated from the Office of National Statistics (ONS). Further information on the 2011 Census can be found by visiting the ONS website
