The estimates are consistent with the previously published Mid-Year Population Estimates for 2006 published in August 2007. Figures for 2007 are also available, showing a slight increase in the population of non-White British origin from 2006 to 2007 (from 42% to 43% for Leicester City, and 10% to 11% for Leicestershire). However ONS are to revise these figures for consistency with revised population estimates.
