This table shows resident population broken down into country of birth, showing data for London's largest communities (over 10,000 people) in 2004, and 2008 to 2013 from the Annual Population Survey (APS). The 2011 Census data is also provided in the spreadsheet to provide a comparison to the APS data.
The table also shows the percentage of the UK community that live in London.
The Annual Population Survey (APS) sampled around 325,000 people in the UK (around 28,000 in London). As such all figures must be treated with some caution. 95% confidence interval levels are provided.
All populations of fewer than 10,000 have been suppressed.
Numbers are rounded to the nearest thousand.
The APS is the only inter-censal data source that can provide estimates of the population stock by nationality. The data have a range of limitations, particularly in relation to their poor coverage of short-term migrants or recent arrivals. They also struggle to provide estimates for small migrant populations due to small sample sizes.
Information about Londoners by Country of Birth using APS data, can be found in DMAG Briefing 2008-05 http://legacy.london.gov.uk/gla/publications/factsandfigures/dmag-briefing-2008-05.pdf
