  • May 2001Towards the London Plan

  • October 2001 Expert Panel on average household size, etc

  • March 2002Planning for London’s Growth

Some basic premises

Some Basic Premises

All work at borough level

Use of latest official ONS/ODPM data throughout:

  • ONS vital statistics

  • Migration based on MYE change analysis, International Passenger Survey, Patient Records and AS/VS

  • DETR 1996-based household representative rates

  • GAD marital status, fertility and mortality forecasts

    Assumptions consistent with GAD/ONS/ODPM

  • ie Projected migration based on latest 5-years data

    However ….


Some problem areas

Some Problem Areas

  • Inconsistencies between ODPM household and dwelling estimates with:

    • Survey of English Housing household estimates

    • Survey of English Housing average household size

    • Council Tax Dwelling stocks

  • Expert Panel discussion

  • A major pragmatic decision required:

    • The future level of average household size?

  • Different age/gender structure from ONS ..

  • .. therefore different household projection from ODPM


Gla 2000 round demographic projections

GLA 2000 Round Demographic Projections

  • Projection 1B – based on London’s Housing Capacity 1996-2016

  • Projection 2 – based on average migration patterns of 1993-98

  • Results for 2016:

    • P1B: Population 7.60 m: Households: 3.34 m

    • P2: Population 8.15 m: Households: 3.59 m

    • Towards the London Plan

  • ONS/DETR 1996-based

    • Population: 7.61 m: Households 3.52 m


Scenario 8 1 june 2001

Scenario 8.1 (June 2001)

Inner, Outer and Greater London as 2000 Round P2

After 1996 Inner/Outer P2 results redistributed to Inner/Outer boroughs according to P1B borough results

Shifted 2016 population away from K&C (52k), Westminster (65k), Barnet (52k) and Richmond (39k)

Shifted 2016 population to Islington (24k), Tower Hamlets (32k), B&D (30k) and Greenwich (30k)

2001 Census/MYE – Sept/Oct 2002

  • 2001 MYE: 7.188 m cf approx 7.475 m

    • 1991 MYE also reduced by 60 k

    • Growth since 1991 reduced by 225 k to 360 k

    • International migration +465 k rather than +690 k

    • ‘Loss’ of young males

    • Younger and more female population

  • ‘Losses’ in Westminster (62k), K&C (31k), Barnet (30k) and Richmond (22k)

  • ‘Gains’ in Tower Hamlets (10k), Brent (10k), B&D (8k) and Southwark (7k)


Gla 2002 round demographic projections

GLA 2002 Round Demographic Projections

  • Three variant projections for sensitivity – following GOL/ODPM comments on dLP

  • Central: average gross and net migration of 1996-2001 after 2001

  • Low: International Migration as Central; UK migration based on 2000-01

  • High: UK Migration as Central; International migration based on 2000-01

  • Population, Households and Economically Active


Greater london results

Greater London Results


The london plan revised forecast

The London Plan: Revised Forecast

  • Central Projection basis for Scenario 7.9 Forecast

  • Borough populations revised to provide a closer match between household projection and ‘London’s Housing Capacity’: 2001-16

  • Household projections then ‘benchmarked’ at constant borough 2001 AHS

  • Overall London AHS of 2.32

  • 2001-16 ‘Benchmarked’ household growth: 307 thousand

  • SDS Technical Report 23


2001 census key statistics

2001 Census: Key Statistics

  • First results showing some of the variables used in household projections

  • Communal establishment population

  • Private household population

  • Total households

  • Average household size

  • Households by type

  • All of relevance to the London Plan forecast


Communal establishment population

Communal Establishment Population

  • 93 thousand – including 6 thousand staff, etc.

  • London: 1.30% E&W: 1.80%

  • 34 thousand in Medical/Care Establishments

  • 53 thousand in ‘Other’ Estabs. Inc students

  • London Plan: 100 thousand: 1.40%

  • Therefore a slightly larger private household population at mid-2001: 7.094 million

Impact on the london plan

Impact on the London Plan

  • 2001 starting level is lower …

  • … but 2001-16 growth little altered

  • 2001: 3.023 million households @ AHS 2.35

  • 2016 Projection: Range 3.395 m to 3.435 m

    • Growth: 370-410 k

    • AHS: 2.27-2.30

  • 2016 Benchmarked Forecast: 3.320 m

    • Growth: 300 k


What are the risks

What are the Risks?

  • International migration continues to rise ..

  • .. but ..

  • .. migration from GL to rest of UK is also rising

  • Internal migration settles back to around 50k/year

  • Household formation starts to accelerate


Lessons from 2001 census so far

Lessons from 2001 Census – so far

  • ONS Mid-year Estimates

    • Who is a resident?

    • Improve international migration estimates

  • ODPM

    • Re-base and rethink household projection model

    • Review Labour Force Survey results

    • Re-weight Survey of English Housing

  • GLA

    • Increase scepticism of MYE

    • Utilise a range of indicators: eg Council Tax

    • The GLA models appear to be robust
