The UK's population has broken through the 60 million barrier for the first time, figures show.

The Office for National Statistics said the number rose 0.6% to 60.2 million in the year to June 2005. England accounts for 50.4 million of the total.

It was the biggest annual rise since 1962, fuelled by migration from new EU countries and an ageing population. Our job of tracing our Family History in 100 years time is going to be very hard to say the least. Though most of it will be digitised.

 
Population: 60.2m
Births: 717,500
Deaths: 590,600
Net migration: 235,000
Highest growth: London
Lowest growth: North West
ONS data for year to 30 June 2005

The population has been rising since the Industrial Revolution.
In 1911 there were 42 million people.
