Mid-2011 to Mid-2015 Population and Dwelling Stock Estimates

As part of the production of the mid-2014 and mid-2015 population and dwelling stock estimates Cambridgeshire County Council undertook a review of its methodology. The estimates were re-based back to Census 2011 in order to provide, for the first time, a mid-2011 set of population and dwelling stock estimates. A revised set of population and dwelling stock estimates for mid-2011 to mid-2013, using a consistent set of data sources and methodology, has been produced along with the mid-2014 and mid-2015 population and dwelling stock estimates.

2015-Based Population and Dwelling Stock Forecasts

Cambridgeshire County Council’s 2015-based population and dwelling stock forecasts build on the mid-2015 population and dwelling stock estimates, and forecast ahead to 2036. The population and dwelling stock forecasts are ‘policy-led’, so that they are consistent with planned levels of house-building. The 2015-based population and dwelling stock forecasts are mainly based on the local authorities’ 2015 housing trajectories, with some interpolation and extrapolation by Cambridgeshire County Council.
