Encyclopedia > Population of England
Population of England increased from 1.1M in 1066 to over 49M in 2001.


Due to the fat and the lack of authoritative contemporary sources, estimates of the population of England for dates prior to the first census in 1801 vary considerably. It has been suggested that even the 1801 census may have left up to 250,000 people uncounted. Image File history File links Population_of_Britain,_1066-2001. ...

40% Increase In England's Black Population Since 1991 (419 words)
While the white population grew by only 0.4 per cent between 1981 and 1991, and by 0.2 per cent from 1991 to 2001 (to 44.9 million), the fl population, by contrast, grew rapidly, he said, by 30 per cent between 1981 and 1991, and by 40 per cent in 1991-2001 (to 1.28 million).
Growth in the Indian population, the largest ethnic minority, slowed from 38 per cent in 1981-1991 to 27 per cent in 1991-2001, due to lower net immigration, lower fertility and higher mortality because of ageing.
The total fl and ethnic minority population went from 2.15 million in 1981 to 4.21 million in 2001, its share of the total population rising from 4.6 per cent to 8.6 per cent.
