Guernsey's population has grown to 62,274, according to figures in the first Annual Population Bulletin.

It said based on historic trends, the population was projected to increase to about 64,300 in 2020 and then decline to about 61,200 in 2060.

The majority of the increase was due to migration with 437 people coming to the island.

The working age population, those aged 16 to 64 years old, increased by 347 and now constitutes 67.5% of the overall population.

The next Guernsey census is due to held in 2011.
