Warwickshire Telegraph - - NEWS -

ENG­LAND’S pop­u­la­tion is ex­pected to rise by nearly four mil­lion in a decade, ac­cord­ing to of­fi­cial fig­ures. The num­ber of people liv­ing in the coun­try is pro­jected to in­crease by 7.2 per cent from 53.5 mil­lion in 2012 to 57.3 mil­lion in 2022, the Of­fice for Na­tional Sta­tis­tics said. The fig­ures sug­gest the pop­u­la­tion is swelling at a rate of around 380,000 a year – or more than 1,000 each day, largely due to there be­ing more births than deaths.
