UK: Annual Mid-year Population Estimates, 2014

Source: Office for National Statistics (UK)

From Main Points:

The population of the UK at 30 June 2014 is estimated to be 64,596,800.

Over the year to mid-2014 the number of people resident in the UK increased by 491,100 (up 0.77%), which is above the average annual increase (0.75%) seen over the last decade.

The population increase in the year to mid-2014 included natural growth of 226,200 people (777,400 births minus 551,200 deaths).

Net international migration of 259,700 people in the year to mid-2014 (582,600 international migrants arrived in the UK and 322,900 migrants left the UK to live abroad) also added to population growth....

The number of births occurring in the year to mid-2014 is down on that seen in the previous year (down 1.9%), continuing the downward movement seen in births since the recent peak in the year to mid-2012...

The median age of the population (the age at which half the population is younger and half the population is older) at mid-2014 was 40 years - the highest ever estimated.

The number and proportion of older people continues to rise, with over 11.4 million (17.7% of the population) aged 65 and over in mid-2014, up from 11.1 million (17.4%) last year.
