    Latest Population Estimates
    The population of Northamptonshire now stands at 733,128 residents according to the 2016 Mid Year Population Estimates released yesterday by the Office for National Statistics.
    This is a 6% increase since the 2011 Census.

    This latest release covers District/Borough level and larger geographies. Lower Super Output Area (LSOA) level population estimates are released in the autumn, so until then there will be a mix of latest dates on Northamptonshire Analysis (2016 data for the larger geographies and 2015 for geographies smaller than District along with the analytical geographies looking at the Deprived/Not Deprived and the Urban/Rural splits which are based on LSOA data). The majority of the population dataviews on Northamptonshire Analysis have been updated with the 2016 data (the exception is the 5 year age band dataview which will be completed towards the middle/end of July). Find all the various dataviews under the Population Age Gender sub-theme within the Population and Census theme.

    Some snippets :
    .... The County's numerical and percentage year-on-year growth between 2015 and 2016 is the highest of the five years since the 2011 Census.
    .... Amongst the county's boroughs and districts, the highest overall growth since the Census has occurred in Corby (11.3%), the lowest in Wellingborough (3.8%).
    .... The ONS estimates that there are now 53,688 persons over the age of 75 resident in the county. They make up 7.3% of the population, up from 6.9% in 2011 but still below the England average proportion of 8.1%.
    .... The proportion of the County's population aged 0-15 is 20.2%, slightly higher than the England average of 19.1%. In Corby children aged 0-15 make up a greater proportion of the population (22.1%) than within the other boroughs and districts. Amongst our Economic Comparators, Milton Keynes and Luton both have proportions of children above 23%.

    Short Term International Migration
    The Short Term International Migration (STIM) inflow figures for the year to end June 2015 (released last week) have been added to the Local Area Migration Suite dataview on Northamptonshire Analysis. This completes the migration suite dataset for the year to end June 2015, the STIM figures being released around nine months after the rest of the suite of local area indicators due to the fact that STIM data is produced from surveying persons leaving the UK rather than entering in order to establish the length of time they have actually stayed.

    In the year to end June 2015, 2542 short term international migrants came to Northamptonshire. This equated to 3.5 migrants per 1000 resident population .... more than the England average rate of 2.8 migrants /1000 pop, but the same rate as the previous year (Y2End June 2014). Amongst the borough and districts, Northampton registered the highest rate of STIM with 7.7 /1000 resident population.

    Latest Migration (NINo) Stats
    The year to end March 2017 statistics released by the DWP today are now available in the National Insurance Allocations to Adult Overseas Nationals dataview, within the Population and Census theme on Northamptonshire Analysis.

    Some key points :
    .... In the year to end March 2017, 13052 National Insurance numbers were allocated to overseas nationals within Northamptonshire. Countywide this is a 3.9% decrease on the year to end December 2016, not quite matching the overall England decrease of 5.0%.
    .... Bucking the trend, in 2016-17 both Corby and South Northamptonshire have logged their highest recorded number of allocations of the last six financial years.
    .... The growth in allocations within Corby is particularly evident within MSOA Corby 006 (Kingswood area).
    .... Across Northamptonshire, the proportion of NI numbers allocated to EU2 (Bulgarian and Romanian) nationals has increased to 54.8% in the year to end March 2017 compared to 29.3% nationally.

    Households Affected by the Benefit Cap
    Yesterday the Department for Work and Pensions released their latest quarterly data (February 2017) on households affected by the benefit cap and key indicators can now be found in the Benefits Cap Dataview in the Economy theme on Northamptonshire Analysis.

    On 7th November 2016 amendments were made to the rules relating to the benefit cap and cap levels were lowered with different cap levels introduced for households inside and outside Greater London. Details of the new and old cap values can be found in our metadata (scroll down until you find the section entitled "Benefit Cap Amounts"). The new rules were phased in across local authorities between the introduction date and January 2017, so these statistics for February 2017 (released yesterday) are the first which reveal the full impact of the amended benefit cap rules. It is believed that Daventry and South Northamptonshire were processed early in the schedule and their new figures were visible in the November statistics, so any change comparisons cited below have been calculated using August 2016 as the baseline.

    So some key points :
    ..... The new lower cap levels have increased the number of households in scope.
    ..... The number of households affected by the benefit cap within Northamptonshire now stands at 647, an increase of 435% since August 2016, somewhat higher than the national increase of 220%.
    ..... Amongst the county's boroughs and districts the increases in capped households varied between Daventry (up 800% to 54 households) and Wellingborough (up 232% to 73 households).
    ..... 43.1% of the county's capped households are based in Northampton (although the borough only contains 31% of all the county's domestic properties).
    ..... The estimated (minimum) number of children in the county living in households affected by the benefit cap now stands at 2230 up 275% from August 2016. This increase is greater than the increase of 159% experienced across England as a whole.
    ..... The changes to the benefit cap appear to have impacted on single parent families to a greater extent in Northamptonshire than across the country as a whole. In Northamptonshire the proportion of all capped households which are single parent households has risen 9.3%-points to 77.1% with the implementation of the new rules, whereas across England as a whole the increase is 5.2%-points (to 72.7%). According to the February 2017 national report (released yesterday) 79% of single-parent capped households in the UK have at least one child aged under 5 years, including 15% with a child aged under 1 year.
    ..... Households with 3 dependent children have increased by the highest percentage across the county as a result of the new rules.
    ..... Again according to the national report, 49% of capped UK households were capped by £50 or less a week at February 2017.
