Country and regional public sector finances: financial year ending 2018 - Population figures?

The request was successful.

Dear Office for National Statistics,

What is your source and formula for population statistics as provided in table 12 (supplementary) of the latest Regional Public Sector Finances ?

Your figures appear to differ on a mid year basis provided here by NOMISWEB (mid year)

https://www.nomisweb.co.uk/livelinks/146...

and by the off chance you decided to adopt ('year end') without making it clear to the public!
EuroStat UK Country and Regions populations at year end, your figures fail to match!

I'm aware that your statistics undergo the highest quality controls!

Yours faithfully,

Richard Murphy
