Hampshire Facts and Figures

Small Area Population Forecasts (SAPF)

2016-based SAPF now available

SAPF Summary

  • Hampshire County Council produces The Small Area Population Forecasts (SAPF)

  • The data provides estimates of the population and the number of dwellings for a variety of geographies, including districts, parishes and wards for all of Hampshire (as well as the Unitary Authorities of Portsmouth and Southampton).

  • The population figures are broken down by age and gender and are forecast from 2016-2023.

  • There is a technical note explaining the methodology for the forecasts Microsoft Word 17kB.

  • To ensure SAPF meets your data needs, please take a look at the  How to use Forecasts, Estimates and Projections page.

  • Users should be aware that in the current economic climate forecasting future dwelling supply has been particularly difficult. The figures are the best projections available as at April 1st 2016 on a site by site basis taking account of the current market conditions.

  • The methodology of the Small Area Population Forecasts (SAPF) is different to that used for the Long Term Projections; as such, the two sets of figures are not directly comparable.

  • Formatting constraints mean that we can only produce the forecasts in Excel spreadsheet format. If you need help or if your computer cannot open spreadsheets in this format then please contact us.
