The population of East Sussex was estimated to be 552,300 in mid-2017, 7% more people than in 2007.  Internal migration from within the UK is the main driver for the rising population in the county – natural change (births minus deaths) continued to be negative in 2017. A new briefing on population estimates is now available.

In 2017, there were 346,300 vehicles registered in East Sussex, 9% more than in 2012.

Teenage pregnancy rates in the county have fallen dramatically in the last ten years, from 36.8 births per 1,000 girls aged 15-17 in 2006, to just 16.1 in 2016.

While cycling rates are increasing, with 8.5% of adults cycling at least once a week in 2015/16 compared to 7.6% in the previous year, the proportion who walk for 10 minutes at least once a week has fallen, from 82.1% in 2014/15 to 69.8% in 2015/16.
