Harrow’s Population is Growing Fast

censuslogoHarrow Council has published another round of information culled from the 2011 Census, which shows that the borough has a usual population of 239,056 people, which has leapt by more than 32,000 since the 2001 Census – an increase of 15.6%. The increase in the borough is higher than the national increase of 7.9% and higher than London’s 14%.

49.4% of residents are male, with 50.6% being females, which is just about the national average. In Harrow, however, the overall percentage of males has increased since 2001, which showed that there were 7,000 more men than women in the borough: this difference is now just 3,000.

Out of the 348 authorities across the country, Harrow is ranked the 23rd most populated, although wards across the borough vary. Generally – excluding Harrow on the Hill – the more densely populated areas are towards the South. That said, Wealdstone is the most densely populated, with 96 pph (people per hectare), almost twice the borough’s overall figure of 52pph. The borough has increase by 6.4pph over since the last census.

53.7% of people in Harrow are married – the highest percentage in London – and above the national average of 46.6%. The number of married people has increased 25% since the last census.

The number of households in Harrow has also increase, from 79.112 to 84,268, with Greenhill seeing the biggest move with an extra 880 households added, increasing it by 216%.

    This is an absolute nightmare. When I moved in to Harrow in 1989 it had the highest % of graduates in the country. Now it is a really horrible place to live, massive overcrowding, strain on services. I used to get a next day doctors appointment in a 1 doc surgery, now it takes 2 weeks in a 2 dr practice. You can never get a seat on a bus, the 140 is often too crowded to even get on at all. Huge levels of noise, litter, anti-social behaviour,no culture, the end of please and thank you. Bring back our Harrow.
