Population change in Cornwall


Cornwall’s population increase is solely attributable to in-migration as more people move to Cornwall than move out. Left to its own devices the population would fall. By 2030 the population would have declined by 14,300.

Below we set out the change in population due to natural change. [All figures in thousands]
