Key Health Indicators
An understanding of the size, structure, past and future development
of a population is fundamental to an understanding of its health.
The following population dynamics are examined in the sections below
with comparisons between LAs and PCTs where data permits:
- births, deaths, and in- and out-migration: combined these factors
determine the change in the population over time
- the estimated current size of the population and how it has changed
in recent years (based on population estimates)
- population structure in terms of age and ethnicity (again based on
- future growth in the population (population projections).
More information on populations in the East Midlands can be found
in the EMPHO report, Census

further comparative analysis of population age structures in local authorities
and PCTs and of the ethnic mix of populations
in the region and its constituent local authority and PCT areas.
