Population change is based on a combination of factors such as births, deaths (natural change) and migration which is the number of people who change their place of usual residence, either by international migration, or migration within areas of the UK.
Births and deaths (natural change)
In 2016 the crude birth rate in Northumberland was 8.9 live births per 10,000 population (all ages).
The standardised mortality rate (for ‘all causes’ of death, all ages per 100,000 population) for Northumberland was 1012 in 2016.

Migration statistics refer to the number of people who change their place of usual residence. The Office for National Statistics (ONS) provides different sets of estimates to cover international migration, and migration within areas of the UK.
Internal migration - the movement of people between areas of the UK
Approximately 9,000 people moved into, and 8,700 people moved out of Northumberland to the rest of England during the year ending June 2013.
