Hillingdon's population, including age structure, gender, ethnicity and population projections for the future.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) sub-national population projections estimate that in 2020 there are 309,300 people living in Hillingdon.

  • 21,540 (7.0 per cent) aged 0 to 4 years
  • 45,985 (14.9 per cent) aged 5 to 15 years
  • 199,660 (64.6 per cent) Hillingdon residents were of working age (16 to 64 years)
  • 22,125 aged 65 to 74 (7.2 per cent)
  • 19,995 (6.5 per cent) aged over 75

Hillingdon is an ethnically diverse borough with 49.5 percent of residents from black and minority ethnic groups. 

Knowledge about population characteristics and changes is important for various reasons, for example:

  • age, sex and ethnic composition of a population helps to determine the need for specific services eg children's, maternity

  • older people's services

  • specific population groups have higher prevalence of certain conditions and changes in the numbers of those populations can indicate increase or decrease in demand for certain treatments and care

  • changes in birth-rates, inwards and outwards migration and expansion of colleges and universities can impact on need for services within a short period and hence need to be monitored
