List of two-tier counties of England

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
For a list including metropolitan counties and unitary authorities, see List of ceremonial counties of England.

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.

In cases where a unitary authority has been detached from a shire county the population of the unitary authority is excluded. For example, Peterborough is excluded from the population figure for Cambridgeshire.

The figures are mid-year estimates for 2015 from the Office for National Statistics.[1][2]

Densities are calculated from population and area values.
