Data Dive: UK population may have fallen by one million during pandemic

The UK’s population may have fallen by as much as a million during the pandemic as people left the country and the birth rate fell.

As people consider becoming parents, the cost of the pandemic on their economic life has been affected and that likely impacts decisions about starting a family.

The birth rate in 2020 was the lowest since records began in the UK.

That calls into question how accurate this year’s census will be.
