Derby's population has changed significantly since the last Census in 2001 when it was recorded at 221,716. In 2001 the Office for National Statistics (ONS) acknowledged that the Census had under-estimated the population in Derby by 7,821 and consequently the 2001 mid-year estimate was changed. The last mid-year population estimate in 2009 predicted that Derby's population had increased to 244,100.
Measuring the change (from 2001 to 2011) in how the city's population is made up is very important in understanding the needs of all communities in Derby. Census statistics also feed into the allocation of funding for local authorities and play a major part in identifying need for local services in communities.
In July 2012, the ONS published the first release of 2011 Census population and household estimates for England and Wales. On Census Day (27 March, 2011) Derby's population was estimated at 248,700.
This first release includes resident census population estimates by:
More detailed census statistics will be published by the ONS later in 2012.
The second release, possibly in the autumn of 2012, will include:
The third release will also be spread across three phases and will include more detail. This should be released throughout 2013.
The fourth release, likely to be available throughout 2013 and 2014, will be the most detailed census results.
