Population Estimates[edit]

Surely the population figures should be based on actual figures and not projections. The projections given appear to be based on the 2003 population estimates[1]. These have already been rendered obselete by the 2004 estimates. Any projections are liable to be inaccurate. josh (talk)

Mid-2006 population figures now available[edit]

The figures for mid-2006 estimates are out now [2] and the article needs to be update with them. Thanks. and-rewtalk 21:59, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

Ooops! 2008 figs now available[edit]

Sorry I added the 2008 figure for Gtr Manchester before realising the whole list was based on 07. Stupid of me. Have undid my own revision back to 07 figs but guess someone ought to go thru and update all the figs for 08 estimates??--Mapmark (talk) 14:48, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

City of London[edit]

I wonder why it has been excluded? MRSC (talk) 09:23, 6 September 2009 (UTC)

Population density[edit]

Why is the area and population density of each county included here? Wouldn't it be better to create another article instead, listing the counties in order of population density? Jprulestheworld01 (talk) 16:49, 13 December 2009 (UTC)

Merger(List of ceremonial counties of England by area)[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section. A summary of the conclusions reached follows.
The result was merge into List of ceremonial counties of England. -- DarkCrowCaw 15:22, 7 May 2012 (UTC)

Since this article (ceremonial counties of England by Population) contains area and density info, I have move it to List of ceremonial counties of England as this a more appropriate name. I have further proposed that List of ceremonial counties of England by area is merged into this article as the two are duplicates of each other and IMHO the information is probably more useful in a single article rather than numerous articles.

THIS IDEA IS STUPID AS PEOPLE CAN NO LONGER TELL WHICH COUNTY COVERS THE MOST AREA OR HAS THE MOST POPULATION FROM A GLANCE —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.171.161.42 (talk) 13:23, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
I agree. I think it would be useful to have the counties ordered by population (again). —86.31.60.217 (talk) 20:29, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

Sort sequence error in list[edit]

It appears that an incorrect sort sequence has been specified for the Area column.

Sorting by this column, for example, generates the following subsequence:

Warwickshire 1,975(762) West Sussex 1,990(769) Bristol 110(42) West Yorkshire 2,029(783) Leicestershire 2,156(832)

Note the incorrect position of Bristol (110) between West Sussex (1,990) and West Yorkshire (2,029).


It looks as if the sort sequence might be based on the ASCII value of the field rather than the numerical value. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.159.108.14 (talk) 19:03, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Greater London & City of London[edit]

So, why are they both listed? I thought City of London is part of Greater London. Usually one area is listed only once, so the smaller one would be excluded. At least a note of the reason of inclusion would be nice. And is it even possible to have a ceremonial county inside another? 85.217.14.81 (talk) 07:19, 27 April 2013 (UTC)
