Access ONS population estimates
Local authority and ward level data on population is available from Office for National Statistics (ONS) Mid-Year Estimates. These build on the 2011 Census, updating the Census figures annually with data on births, deaths, and estimates of migration. You can find the 2016 local authority level population data on www.nomisweb.co.uk or www.neighbourhood.statistics.gov.uk
For areas smaller than Local Authority, the ONS publishes estimates for wards and statistical geographies (Lower and Middle layer Super Output Areas).

When to use this data: use for Oxfordshire’s county and district population estimates when comparisons will be made with other parts of the country, e.g. for reporting national indicators or applying for government grants. Use Ward estimates when comparing local areas in Oxfordshire with other local areas in England. However, for parishes and output areas, the best estimates are Census data.
