Although many articles and booksCited by: 4. Population and Prices. Population. Sixteenth-century Englishmen worried that England was over-populated. Thomas Malthus later argued, in An Essay on the Principle of Population (), that population always tended to rise faster than food production, until it was cut back by famine, disease or war. (Contraception was not in general use.). The Population History of England presents basic demographic statistics - monthly totals of births, deaths and marriages - and uses them in conjunction with new methods of analysis to determine population size, gross production rates, expectation of life at birth, age structure and net migration totals.

In , during the reign of Henry VIII, the population of England and Wales was about 3 million. Towards the end of the reign of Elizabeth I, it had risen to about 4 million. The epidemic termed sweating sickness and thenew ague noted in parish registers in the s, and particularly was probably influenza. The worst international outbreak (pandemic) ever recorded was after the First World War, when half the world’s population was infected and estimates of deaths range from 15 to 40 million, more than the total number killed in the Great War (WWI) itself. The demography of England has since been measured by the decennial national census, and is marked by centuries of population growth and urbanisation. Due to the lack of authoritative contemporary sources, estimates of the population of England for dates prior to the first census in vary considerably. Estimates Population estimates are calculated by combining birth and death registration data together with estimates of international migration and internal migration (within UK) flows to calculate estimates for the usually resident population of each area as at 30 June each year.
