Population Estimates 2020

Note: The 2021 Census population estimate for Cheshire West and Chester is 357,200.  This is higher than the Office for National statistics had previously estimated the population (343,800 mid-2020 estimate).  Products on this website including State of the Borough Report, Population Estimates and Population Forecasts were produced before the Census results were published.  Population in all these products should be used with caution as the 2021 Census provides the most accurate estimate of the population.  These products will be updated with the latest census based population estimates over the coming months.
