Interesting, that uses non-final data for the census, from the ONS tables the figure is 2.7m - not final either, more to be added (but it's unlikely to change!)

EDIT: I'm a donut, I just realised that's the estimates!

E11000005 West Midlands (Met County) 2,738,100
E08000025 Birmingham 1,073,000
E08000026 Coventry 318,600
E08000027 Dudley 312,900
E08000028 Sandwell 308,100
E08000029 Solihull 206,700
E08000030 Walsall 269,300
E08000031 Wolverhampton 249,500

The population of the West Midlands is now 2.7m
2,738,151

The population of Birmingham is now 1.07m - 1,073,000
Only those people who were willing to fill in, or be on, the census !

I am sure there are plenty of people (for one reason or another) who did not fill in the census (maybe language problems), or did not want to be included on it (people overstaying their visas, illegal immigrants etc).

My guess is this problem of "missing people" may be worse now than in previous decades.

So our urban conurbation (without Coventry) comes to 2,419,500 people - officially! Not bad for a city region. That's what Brum should dish out when marketing itself to international organisations etc, and not the small-minded 1 million figure.
