This is a list of two-tier counties of England by population.

It includes those non-metropolitan counties (also known as shire counties) with a two-tier county council structure and does not include metropolitan counties or unitary authorities.

Where a unitary authority has separated from a shire county the population of the unitary authority is counted elsewhere. For example, the population of Peterborough is NOT included in Cambridgeshire in this table.

The figures are mid-year estimates for 2017 from the Office for National Statistics.[1][2]

Densities are calculated from population and area values.
