Population ageing in the UK: an interactive tool

5th November 2009 3pm, University of Southampton 2/2043

Shayla Goldring, Office for National Statistics

Ageing in the UK is an interactive mapping tool which allows you to analyse the age structure of the population at the Local Authority (LA) level more easily. You can see how the population has aged over time and is projected to continue to age by selecting from a list of indicators of population ageing, such as median age, and animating the map. Data can be extracted from the tool by selecting a local authority. This presentation will detail the tool and also provide some insights into the patterns of population ageing we are seeing at the sub national level.
