Introduction to Census 2011
At the last Census (held in March 2011), Derby's population was estimated at 248,700. The next Census will not be until 2021. Between censuses, the Office for National Statistics publishes mid-year estimates. In 2019, it was estimated that Derby’s population had increased to 257,300.
Measuring the changes 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.
