The Office for National Statistics has published the population estimates for England and Wales at local authority level.
This report was produced using the official 2011 census statistics and do not relate to the later mid-year estimates. However, for the purposes of research and policy, many institutions see it as acceptable to use 2011 census statistics so long as some caveat is made about the estimated changes since 2011.
This report gives some detail of the gender and age structure of the borough (broken down into five-year bands) and people who have second homes. This release does not go below the local authority level.
The Office for National Statistics revises its population estimates annually, so for the most up-to-date figures, please click on the link above.
