Report published July 2007

The population of Hampshire is projected to grow by over 100,000 people to 1,792,000 by 2026.  Understanding the size and composition of the local population and appreciating how it might change is essential if adequate service provision and infrastructure are to be provided and maintained.

The report explains the likely size and characteristics of the population of Hampshire and the cities of Portsmouth and Southampton and the effects of the expected changes. It sets out an overall picture and also identifies key differences between districts.  It explores the likely impacts of trends on

  • housing provision;
  • education;
  • healthcare; and
  • the labour market.

The report draws on a wealth of national and local demographic data to describe and explore past, current and likely future demographic trends.  It considers factors that directly affect population change:

  • fertility;
  • mortality: and
  • migration.

It also addresses related matters such as ethnicity, marital status, age distribution and household composition.
