Society and Economy
Data from the 2011 Census indicates that in the past 10 years, the population of Wales has increased by 5.5%. In the same time period the population of Snowdonia National Park has increased by 0.86%.
Snowdonia has a small population relative to its area, reflecting the rural characteristics. The population has lower levels of young people and higher proportions of both older residents and of non-Welsh residents than for Wales as a whole. Some key indicators for the National Park’s population are sourced from the 2011 National Census and 2013 mid-year estimates.
