There has been a technical delay publishing the Q2 COMIN Report - but I have obtained data from the Economic Affairs Division in advance relating to the number of people registered with a GP and the population estimates for June 2019.
The graph above shows the population estimates for June 2019. The
number of people aged under 65 years is estimated to have
increased by 83 between the end of March and the end of June,
taking the total to 66,200. This is just 83 higher than at the
2016 Census. The red graph shows that the under 65 population is
3,300 lower than in 2011 and has flat-lined since the 2016
The number of people aged over 65, shown by the blue graph, is estimated to have increased by 45 in the second quarter, rising above 18,000 for the first time to 18,035. The over 65 population is now 838 higher than in 2016 and 3,049 higher than the 2011 Census figure.
The overall population is estimated to have grown by 128 in the second quarter of 2019, taking the total to an estimated 84,235 - still over 260 below the population recorded in the 2011 Census. The percentage of the population aged over 65 has risen to a record 21.41%. The population is still ageing, albeit more slowly.
