The pattern of population change in U.K. regions is explored using both conventional single region methods and new multi-regional techniques. Current patterns of spatial population growth are outlined using components of growth tabulations, multi-regional population accounts tables, and an analysis of the age specific patterns of fertility, mortality and migration. The first British multi-regional life table, spatial fertility expectancy table, and multi-regional migraproduction table are described, and summary measures from these tables are compared with their single region equivalents. Population projections are carried out using a multi-regional survivorship matrix for British regions and the results are compared with official and accounts based projections. The paper concludes with speculations about the causes underlying the patterns observed and assesses the role of governmental policy in shaping those patterns.
