2014 Mid-year population estimates:

Ward level population in Kent

Related information

This bulletin presents the 2014 Mid-year

population estimates at ward level for Kent as

published by the Office for National Statistics

(ONS) on 25 November 2015. Annual change

since Mid-year 2013 is also presented.

Ward boundary changes in Canterbury, Shepway, Swale

and Tonbridge & Malling came in to effect as of May 7

2015. Data for these new wards is not available at the

time of writing.

Summary of findings

In 2014 the average population size of a ward in

Kent was 5,340 people.

The ward with the largest population is St.Stephens

in Canterbury with 11,600 people. The ward with

the smallest population is Eynsford in Sevenoaks

with only 1,860 people.

In Kent, 225 wards (80%) have seen a growth in

population in the past 12 months.

Westgate ward in Canterbury has seen the highest

increase in both number and percentage with an

additional +670 people (+6.2%).

57 Kent wards (20%) have seen a loss in

population between Mid-2013 and Mid-2014.

Blean Forest ward in Canterbury experienced the

greatest loss in both number and percentage with a

loss of -400 people (-6%).

Crockenhill & Well Hill ward in Sevenoaks is the

only war to have experienced no change in

population between Mid-2013 and Mid-2014.

Introduction

Mid-Year Population Estimates, or MYPE are derived from a census

population count and each year are rolled forward (people aged by one year)

allowing for changes recorded for births, deaths and migration. Additional

allowances are made to model the transient population such as students and

personnel from the armed forces. This modelling process provides fairly

robust data for larger areas of geography but the margin for error is larger for

small areas, which is why these ward level MYPE are classed as

‘experimental statistics’.

The ward level MYPE data presented in this bulletin are based on population

data recorded through the 2011 Census. When a new census is taken all

historic estimates up to the year prior to that census are re-based to reflect

the population counts recorded via the latest census results. The ONS has

revised all historic ward level population estimates from mid-2002 through to

mid-2010 in-line with the findings of the 2011 Census. This time-series for

Kent wards is available in Excel format upon request.

This bulletin presents the total population at ward level. The 2014 Mid-year

population estimates by 5yr age group and sex at ward level are available

within the

ward profiles

on the KCC website

Note on the data

It is ONS policy to present all estimates rounded to the nearest hundred at

local authority level and to the nearest ten at ward level. Within this bulletin all

mid-year estimates have been individually rounded and therefore may not

sum. Percentages have been calculated using unrounded numbers.

The data in this bulletin will be updated in Autumn 2016 when the 2015

Mid-Year Population Estimates will be released.

Rural and urban classification

The ‘2011 Rural Urban Classification for Small Area Geographies’ or RUC for

short was released in August 2013.

The RUC was developed for a consortium of government agencies for use

with the 2001 Census and revised following the 2011 Census for a similar

consortium including the Department of Communities and Local Government

(DCLG), the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), the

Office of National Statistics (ONS) and the Welsh Government (WG).

(3)

Urban totals are created from all wards classified as A1, B1, C1 and C2 and

rural totals are created by adding together data for wards classified as D1,D2,

(town and fringe) and E1 and E2 (rural village). Kent and Medway wards are

categorised as A1, C1, D1 and E1. These are illustrated in Map 1.

Within this bulletin and in the ward profiles we group the wards into urban and

rural areas and identify individual towns such as Maidstone, Tonbridge and

Canterbury plus smaller rural settlements such as Tenterden, Pembury and

Sandwich.

Rural and urban area population

The number of people living in urban areas within Kent in 2014 was just over

1.1 million. This is a rise of +13,580 people (+1.2%) since 2013. In 2014 the

population living in rural areas was 400,480 people. This is a rise of +3,270

people, (+0.8%) since 2013.

People living in urban areas makes up 73% of the Kent population but they

only occupy 22% of the total land area. The remaining 27% of the population

live in rural areas but occupy 78% of the land in Kent. See Tables 1, 2 and 3

for more detail

Urban area and rural settlement population

Data for individual wards is grouped into other useful geographies such as

urban and rural settlements. The population of these individual areas are

presented in the relevant local authority tables throughout this bulletin.
