New 2016-based housing-led forecasts for districts

***RELEASE NOTE 20 March 2018***

We have discovered a technical issue with the recently published Oxfordshire County Council population forecasts based on housing growth and used in the JSNA 2018 report - available on the agenda for the Health and Wellbeing Board meeting on 22nd March 2018.

The issue affects a small number of age groups and years and is being investigated.  If the error is as straight forward as expected to fix, then we will to be able to publish revised forecasts by the end of March, or within 4 weeks if more complex.

The difference in total numbers is likely to be small and it will not affect the core messages of a growing and aging population.

With apologies for the error.
