Example text

This list is by no means exhaustive. Central government handles a vast amount of detailed statistical information, much of which is for specialized applications. The more important sources of data are now brought together by the ONS, which has taken over responsibility form the Central Statistical Office for collecting some of the information and for publishing consolidated volumes of statistics. Social and demographic data are included in the Monthly Digest of Statistics, Annual Abstract of Statistics, Social Trends and Regional Trends.

More detailed information is included on microfiche; this contains tables summarizing the annual components of change and gives projected populations by individual ages, as well as the variant projections, using alternative assumptions about fertility and mortality rates. The methodology of population projection is similar to that of population estimates. It is relatively simple in principle, but complex in terms of the statistical calculations involved. The technique is referred to as the component method and involves information about four principal factors: the base population, levels of mortality, levels of fertility, and migration.

However, differences in the age and sex characteristics of immigrants and emigrants have been taken into account. Generally speaking, immigrants are younger than emigrants and the projections assume a net inflow of young adults under the age of 25 and a counterbalancing net outflow of adults aged 25–34. Net migrational flows between England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland have also been relatively consistent during the 1980s. England and Wales have made marginal gains at the expense of losses from Scotland and Northern Ireland.
