Growth and Decline of the Irish Population between Census 2011 & Census 2016

Last week, following the publication of Census 2016 Small Area Population Statistics, we have released a map of Ireland’s 2016 population as a line chart.

We added some history to last week’s population map, by comparing the figures from Census 2011 with the figures from Census 2016. We used colour to highlight changes of more than 100 people or more than 5% of the 2011 population.

Notice how the small absolute change along the west coast translates to a significant proportion of the 2011 population.
