aqmenResponse to media Enquiry - email correspondence with BBC reporter Ruth Alexander on potential story for Radio 4's More or Less about ONS Population Projection assumptions. - Pre-follow-up (?) to ILC-UK blog entry above. Query from Ruth Alexander was sent to Danny Dorling, about UK population projections which had recently been announced. Danny suggsted Ruth contact me about the mortality assumption component of these projections, as the blog illustrated how conventional projections can underestimate longevity. Unsure whether feature was run or if material sent was used in this regard. J Minton
