The population data shown below come from two sources.
The Registrar General's Mid Year Estimates are produced annually by the Office for National Statistics and provide population figures for various age bands at a local authority level.
The Patient and Practitioner Services Agency (PPSA) data is updated annually and are the only source of parish and ward data between censuses. Their precise accuracy are unknown and the only data available for comparison are the Registrar General's data, which are themselves estimates.

The County of Devon has been divided into 29 "Devon Town" areas and in order to identify these analysis has been completed looking at Local Travel Plans, shopping catchment areas, Learning Community catchment areas, Market and Coastal Town Initiative areas, parishes and taking in to account other relevant factors. The main factor that decides a town's hinterland is provision of services - the place that the hinterland looks to in order to provide the things it needs to survive.
