Mapping Londoners: Born in Denmark

The number of Danes who are resident in London appears to be increasing. According to the last census in 2011, 7,870 people said they were born in Denmark. That was around half the number from Sweden.

But the latest estimate from the Annual Population Survey (a little less reliable than the census as it is based on a survey sample) suggests that the number of Danish born Londoners has climbed to 11,000 and is now higher than the Swedish population of the capital by 1,000.

The census data reveals that Danes, like Swedes, choose to live centrally with Westminster, Kensington and Chelsea, and Camden with the largest populations. Hackney, Wandsworth and Ealing are also popular choices to for a home.

Danes are spread a little more evenly across the boroughs than other Scandinavians.
