Population projections for National Parks
It is estimated that the population of each of the three National Parks in Wales will decrease between 2013 and 2028 (the 2008 based projections estimated small population increases). The number of people under the age of 65 is projected to decrease between 2013 and 2028. Over the same period the number of people aged 65 or over is projected to increase.
It is estimated that:
- the number of deaths in each of the three National Parks in Wales is estimated to be more than the number of births
- more people are expected to move to the Brecon Beacons than leave the area; for the Pembrokeshire Coast and Snowdonia more people are expected to leave the area than move in.
Between 2013 and 2028:
- the total population living in a National Park in Wales (81,800 in 2013) is estimated to decrease by 5.9 per cent to 77,000
- the Brecon Beacons population (33,500 in 2013) is estimated to fall by 2.7 per cent
- the Pembrokeshire Coast population (22,800 in 2013) is estimated to fall by 11.5 per cent
- the Snowdonia population (25,500 in 2013) is estimated to fall by 5.0 per cent.
