This document from the GLA Intelligence unit and published in October 2013 shows:
- There were 68,992 short-term residents in London on Census Day accounting for 37 per cent of all those in England & Wales
- Over a fifth of short-term residents in England & Wales lived in Inner London
- Almost a quarter (23 per cent) of short-term residents in London lived in Westminster, Camden or Tower Hamlets
- 68.8 per cent of London’s short-term residents were aged between 20 and 34
- The short-term resident population had a significant male bias in the 29-44 age bracket, and a female bias in the youngest and oldest groups
- The older a short-term resident was, the more likely they were to live in London
- The most populous age cohort in London was 20-24. In Inner London 39.1 per cent of short-term residents were in this age cohort while in Outer London 28.4 per cent were in this group. Almost half of all short-term residents in London were students and this would go some way to explaining the high proportion seen in the 20-24 age cohort.
