Feeling poor and working more - again • Resolution Foundation | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
Today’s labour market data tell us a bit more about how the labour market is responding to high inflation and the cost of living shock. We see some things we would expect, some things which may be surprising, and much that remains unresolved.

Suffolk population grows by 4.4% according to census data

Suffolk population grows by 4.4% according to census data | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
Suffolk's population has increased by 4.4% — 32,100 people — in the past decade, and the county's high numbers of older people will put more pressure on public services, an MP has said. 

The figures, released on Tuesday by the Office of National Statistics, signal a slowdown in population growth in the county over the past 10 years. 

The previous census in 2011 showed the number of people living in the county rose by 9%.

Death literacy: why it's important to talk about dying

Death literacy: why it's important to talk about dying | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
When it comes to talking about death, we have no shortage of euphemisms. This is perhaps most famously illustrated in Monty Python’s dead parrot sketch from 1971. A pet shop worker insists to a customer that his new parrot is “not dead but resting, stunned, pining for the fjords, kipping on his back, tired and shagged out after a long squawk”. The customer responds: “It is an ex-parrot, deceased, gone to the choir invisible, is pushing up the daisies, demised, passed on, is no more, has ceased to be. It’s expired and gone to see its maker, is a bereft of life, late parrot that rests in peace.”

Population of England and Wales grew by 6.3%, latest census reveals | Metro News | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
The population of England and Wales now stands at almost 60 million people – a rise of more than 3.5 million in a decade, the latest census has revealed.

The two nations are now home to 59,597,300, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) said – with 56,489,800 in England and 3,107,500 in Wales.

That means the growth in population, from 56,075,912 in 2011, is equivalent to adding a group of people larger than those currently living in Wales.

Hard work won't be enough to pay your energy bill this winter

Hard work won't be enough to pay your energy bill this winter | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
he idea that the UK is in the middle of a cost-of-living crisis is, as Donald Trump would say, fake news where the country’s wealthiest are concerned. While millions struggle to pay bills, energy companies are recording ever-greater profits, the rich are getting richer, and the Conservative government offers little more than patronising platitudes.

We will do “everything in our power” to help people, Chancellor Nadeem Zahawi said last week, but analysts now warn that the British public could be hit with a £1,200 rise in energy prices this October, pushing up a typical energy bill to an estimated £3,244 a year. But none of Zahawi, Boris Johnson in his last days of power, or either of the candidates who will replace him as prime minister, Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak, have any intention of doing “everything” they could to help out.

Average UK household £8,800 a year worse off than those in France or Germany | Economic growth (GDP) | The Guardian | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
The UK’s failure to get serious about inequality and weak growth over the past 15 years has left the average British household £8,800 poorer than its equivalent in five comparable countries, research has found.

A “toxic combination” of poor productivity and a failure to narrow the divide between rich and poor had resulted in a widening prosperity gap with France, Germany, Australia, Canada and the Netherlands, the report from the Resolution Foundation said.

• Chart: The Aging Population of England and Wales | Statista

• Chart: The Aging Population of England and Wales | Statista | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
New data from the 2021 census has found that nearly one in five people, or 11.1 million, in England and Wales is over 65. This is the highest share of people in the age bracket on record, signaling an aging population that is nearing retirement. North Norfolk had the oldest population, with one in three people being over 65.

Although the absolute number of young people has increased, as our chart shows, their ratio to the rest of the population fell in the two nations, with 2021 reflecting a lower share of people aged 0-19 than ten years before. This is mirrored in the wider trend, as while the population has increased by 3.5 million (or 6.3 percent) since 2011, when it was 56,075,912, this growth has been at a slower pace than in the ten years before, when it rose by 7.8 percent (or 4 million).

Census figures for London should be treated with 'extreme caution' says cross-party body

Census figures for London should be treated with 'extreme caution' says cross-party body | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
Newly-released figures from the 2021 Census are likely to have significantly undercounted the capital’s population and should be treated with “extreme caution” as a basis for the allocation of government funding, according to London Councils, the cross-party body that represents the capital’s 33 local authorities.

The headline Census finding is that London’s population was 8.8 million as of 21 March 2021 – Census Day – but London Councils point out that this figure is almost 300,000 lower than the most recent Office for National Statistics projection for 2021 (produced in 2018) and just over 200,000 lower than the mid-year estimate for 2020.

The increase can be attributed to births and people moving into the borough to live and work.
