Household projections for Council areas in Scotland

Household projections for Council areas in Scotland

National Records of Scotland (NRS) have published their 2014-base household projections (for 2014 to 2039). These replace the 2012-base household projections (for 2012 to 2037), which were published on 30 July 2014.

Some key results:

The number of households in Scotland is expected to rise by 14% over the projection period, from 2,418,000 in 2014 to 2,764,000 in 2039 (a growth of 13,800 per year).

In the previous projection, the number of households in Scotland was expected to rise by 17% over the projection period, from 2,387,000 in 2012 to 2,783,000 in 2037 (a growth of 15,800 per year).

The number of households in Glasgow City is expected to rise by 16% over the projection period, from 288,000 in 2014 to 335,000 in 2039 (a growth of 1,900 per year).

In the previous projection, the number of households in Glasgow City was expected to rise by 24% over the projection period, from 286,000 in 2012 to 354,000 in 2037 (a growth of 2,700 per year).

The number of households in Glasgow and Clyde Valley area (excluding Glasgow City) is expected to rise by 10% over the projection period, from 536,000 in 2014 to 587,000 in 2039 (a growth of 2,100 per year).

In the previous projection, the number of households in Glasgow and Clyde Valley area (excluding Glasgow City) was expected to rise by 8% over the projection period, from 529,000 in 2012 to 570,000 in 2037 (a growth of 1,600 per year).

In the latest population projections NRS has reallocated (in comparison with the previous 2012-base projections) some of the Conurbation’s expected population growth away from Glasgow City to other Council areas in the Conurbation. This is now reflected in the household projections, with a projected household growth for Glasgow City of 16% (was 24%) and a projected household growth for the rest of the Conurbation of 10% (was 8%). Projected household growth for the total Conurbation is 12% (was 13%).
