Figures published by UK's Office of National Statistics (ONS) in late October, 2015 show that the UK population is projected to rise by 9.7 million over the next 25 years from an estimated 64.6 million to 74.3 million. Just over half of this is set to be accounted for by migration while the rest will be due to more births than deaths according to the ONS’ assumptions.
