Archive News

The population of East Sussex was estimated to be 554,600 in mid-2018, 7% more people than in 2008.  Internal migration from within the UK is the main driver for the rising population in the county – there continued to be more deaths than births in 2018.  East Sussex has a much older population profile than the country as a whole.  A new Population Briefing is now available.

International migration grew marginally in 2018, but is still at a lower level than in 2016, and was lower than net losses from natural change (births minus deaths).

In 2017/18 2,810 people started apprenticeship programmes, but this was 28% lower than in 2016/17
