Rotherham's population is both growing and ageing, as people live longer. Latest figures show that by mid-2014 the population of Rotherham was at its highest ever level, at an estimated 260,100.
In line with the rest of the country, the most significant demographic change occurring in Rotherham is the growth in the number of older people. 18.8% of the population are aged 65 and over but this will rise to a projected 20.7% by 2021.
