Population of Newcastle Wards

Ward population estimates have been developed by Newcastle City Council using ONS Lower Layer Super Output Areas (LLSOAs) experimental statistics. Statistics displayed at Ward level will differ to the experimental statistics produced by ONS. This is due to a difference in method of applying the Lower Layer Super Output Area estimates to Ward boundaries. However, the City totals are unaffected by this process, and will match the information produced by ONS. These ward population estimates were updated on the 14th January 2011, to take into account the revised ONS population estimates for 2001-2008 which were released in Summer 2010.
