This is an annual increase of 6,000 people (0.3 per cent) on the 2021 estimate.

This is one of the findings of new statistics published this month by the Statistics and Research Agency (NISRA).

This annual change is driven by natural growth of 3,800 people (21,500 births and 17,700 deaths) combined with a gain of 2,300 people over the year due to net migration (27,000 people moving here to live and 24,700 people leaving here to live elsewhere).
