! Updated - Population projections (POPPI/PANSI)
The Projecting Older People Population Information System and Projecting Adult Needs and Service Information System, provided by the Institute of Public Care, have been updated to include the latest population projection figures for a number of key characteristics, e.g. learning disability, dementia, self-care, alcohol / drug dependence, etc.
A selection of data tables, showing population projections against a series of key characteristics are provided on info4St.Helens via the Population theme in the Data and Resources section. The data tables do not attempt to replicate all the population projection data, instead to provide an overview of some of the key characteristics. Further data can be found at POPPI for data relating to people aged 65 and over or PANSI for data relating to people aged 18-64 years.
The latest subnational population projections available for England, published 23 May 2016, are full 2014-based and project forward the population from 2012 to 2039. POPPI and PANSI have been adjusted to show standard years as 2017, 2020, 2025, 2030, 2035.
Long term population projections are an indication of the future trends in population by age and gender over the next 25 years. They are trend based projections, which means assumptions for future levels of births, deaths and migration are based on observed levels mainly over the previous five years. They show what the population will be if recent trends in these continue. The projections do not take into account any policy changes that have not yet occurred, nor those that have not yet had an impact on observed trends.
