Population and Communities

Understanding the size and composition of the population is a crucial contextual consideration for economic development. The number of people and the age profile of the county influences key measures, such as the size of the working age population. This affects the number of jobs that are required, and for businesses the ease with which they are able to fill roles from the local labour market, with implications for attracting inward investment, and the overall productivity of the county.

In addition, the profile affects demand for a range of services, with areas with younger age profiles more likely to require education and child care services, whilst areas with older profiles are more likely to require health facilities, for example.
