North Lincolnshire is a unitary authority area which is actually within the Yorkshire and the Humber region of north England, but for ceremonial purposes is viewed as a part of the county of Lincolnshire. The area lies on the south side of the Humber estuary and consists mainly of agricultural land, including land on either side of the River Trent. The area is bordered by North East Lincolnshire, Lincolnshire, South Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and the East Riding of Yorkshire, and includes the three major settlements of Brigg, Barton upon Humber and Scunthorpe, which is the administrative centre.
North Lincolnshire’s Demographics
According to an estimate from 2011, the 846 square km (327 square mile) council area supports a permanent resident population of approximately 167,500 people, making it the 107th most populous of England’s 326 districts. This does not mean that it is a particularly densely populated area, however, as the region is the 41st largest by land area, and as such the population density of North Lincolnshire is in fact a comparatively low 510 per square mile.
