The East Riding of Yorkshire is located in the north of England on the East Coast approximately 200 miles from Edinburgh, London and Rotterdam.
The East Riding of Yorkshire comprises of 26 Wards, 171 Parishes, 210 Lower Super Output Areas () and 1,114 Output Areas ( ), covering an area of approximately 240,768 hectares (or 930 square miles). The coastline stretches for 53 miles from Bempton to Spurn Point.
In 2019 the population was estimated at 341,173 (2019Statistics Mid-Year Estimates). In 2041 the population is predicted to reach 358,880 (2018 Population Projections), which is a lower rate of growth than the national growth rate at 5.5% compared to 9.6%.
In 2011, theclassified the East Riding as being approximately 93% rural by area and 44% rural by population. This results in a low population density of approximately 1.4 people per hectare.

In 2011, the University of Leeds updated a 2006 project that released population projections up to 2051, based on a cohort component methodology using 2001 mid year population estimates. The projections are calculated by combining rolling annual totals from previous estimates, fertility, mortality, immigration and emigration. The results of this projection study show that in the East Riding, the ethnic minority population is set to increase from 2% in 2011 to 4% in 2051 with roughly 14,000 residents belonging to ethnic minority groups. This is considerably lower than the projected 2051 ethnic minority population in the Yorkshire and the Humber region at 18% and England as a whole at 21%.

Indices of Multiple Deprivation
The heat map shows the levels of deprivation across the East Riding. The Indices of Multiple Deprivation Score allows us to compare areas across England, identify the most deprived areas, explore types of deprivation and look at changes in deprivation. In relation to , deprivation has been shown to predict poor personal and societal wellbeing which we know impacts negatively. Those who are deprived generally report less life satisfaction, are less able to secure goods that are essential and experience inequality as they are not gaining the normative ideals that others are.
The map below illustrates the ‘economic interplay’ between the East Riding and surrounding local authorities according to travel-to-work data collected in the 2011 Census. Travel flows have remained remarkably similar between 2001 and 2011, as a significant number of residents commute out of the East Riding for employment, which is perhaps to be expected in a rural authority bordering major urban areas.
In 2011 there were 83,400 people that both lived and worked in the East Riding of Yorkshire, which represents a retention rate of 60.7% for residents aged 16-64 that were in employment in the week before the Census. Outflow is predominantly to Hull (33,100; 24.0%), York (5,500; 4.0%), and Selby District (2,500; 1.8%). The only significant change in numbers has been the increase in the number of people commuting into the East Riding for work from Hull (+5,100), Doncaster (+700), and Selby District (+500). In total, 18,900 people stated that they mainly worked from home, which is the third highest number in the region behind Leeds and Bradford.
