Pre Release Questions 3

Question 3
Q3) How long did it take for the population to double in size again ? and again ?
What does this tell you about the rate of population increase in England and Wales since 1801 ? 2001 ?

A3) It took 60 years to double from 1841 to 1901, since when, we have not had another doubling. This means that it is over 100 years and still not doubled...

The rate of increase by this measure is slowing down...

However, since 2001 there has been an increase in the rate of growth.

In 2001 there was a Census: a count of population.
Interestingly, just last week, there was a Census test carried out in some parts of the country: Bath and North East Somerset, Camden, Carmarthenshire, Liverpool and Stoke-on-Trent.

You can download some FACT SHEETS on the test from THIS PAGE.
Some interesting discussion on SAMPLING here.
You can also download the 24 page questionnaire.

Anyone involved in the trial ?
