List of Ceremonial counties of England by Population

From Academic Kids

This is a List of Ceremonial counties of England by Population - 2003 mid-year estimates from the Office for National Statistics, unrounded figures published by the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister in the Entitlement Notification Reports for Revenue Support Grants [1] (http://www.local.odpm.gov.uk/finance/0506/grant.htm).

Usage note:This list is based a definition of a county which is frequently used by the British public, but some of these counties are no longer administrative areas, or have smaller populations for administrative purposes because they include administratively independent unitary authorities.
