Yorkshire and the Humber population projections: age and ethnicity

Author[s] Stillwell, John; Rees, Philip and Boden, Peter

Date 2006



The research, commissioned by Yorkshire Futures, aimed to provide a set of population projections for a wider initiative examining the future economic development of the region.


The research uses an Ethnic Projection Model [EPM] developed by the School of Geography at the University of Leeds to make population predictions.

Key issues

The report provides statistical data, charts, graphs and maps showing population projections generated from the EPM for the Yorkshire and Humber region, metropolitan districts, unitary authorities and North Yorkshire districts by age group and ethnic group. Also, the EPM projection process is explained.


EPM projections indicate a growing, ageing population, with different rates of growth among different ethnic groups.
