The Demography team within the GLA’s Intelligence Unit produces a number of sets of demographic projections. These projections are used to help inform planning and policy work within the GLA and across London. Most sets are updated annually, incorporating the latest data as it becomes available. The team’s projection outputs fall into four main areas: population, households, ethnicity, and economic activity. These can each be explored through the links below.

The range of GLA projections is outlined visually in the Projection Tree tool. This tool describes how the projections relate to one another, how they are set up, and what their primary purpose is.
