Population projections by Ethnic Group for the
County are now available here. These have been produced using the
1991 and 2001 Census results, the mid-year estimates for the years
2001-05, the indicative estimates for 2006-10 which incorporate
improved estimates of immigration, and the experimental statistics
on population by ethnicity for 2001-09. It should be noted that
these projected figures are also consistent with the ONS
2010-based population projections, and therefore do not take into
account any policy changes that could have an impact on future
Projections by ethnicity for the county can be
The population of ethnic minorities is
relatively small in Worcestershire. In mid-2009 just over 91% of
persons in Worcestershire are classed as White British compared to
83% in the whole of England. The percentage of people from
a BME (Black or Minority Ethnic) background is
projected to increase in the future, although the White British
group is still projected to make up 78% of Worcestershire's
population in 2035.
Each of the different ethnic groups are
expected to increase to some extent with the exception of the White
British group. Largest increases in terms of numbers are projected
in the White Other group, which is projected to increase by around
15,500 persons between 2010 and 2035, and the Pakistani and Indian
groups, which are projected to grow by around 14,500 and 12,500
In 2035, the White Other group is projected to
be the largest ethnic minority in Worcestershire, at 4.4% of the
population, with the Pakistani group (3.4%) and the Indian group
(3.0%) also each projected to make up a relatively high proportion
of the residents in the county.
