I think 1 to 17 is the official numbers of under 18's in lewes, and before you ask 19 or over is the official numbers of over 18's in lewes.

The ESCC website East Sussex in figures calculates from the last census that, in Lewes District one person in three will be over 65 by 2016 . LDC has a more elderly population than many other parts of the county. Many houses have single person occupancy, in part because there is limited appropriate housing for people to downsize and remain near essential services and public transport.

@RSP the original poster asked how many under 18s there are NOT how many old people , but thanks .

RSP is a typical Liberal. You ask a question, and they answer by rambling on about slightly different subject and use the opportunity to slip in other political points!

Assuming national figures reflect local... 13mi under 18s (2011 census) UK pop 63mi. So kids nationally =21%. Popn of Lewes 100000. Therefore number of under 18s approx 21000. BTW... I read in Guardian today... Jeremy Corbyn urging supporters to use social media widely to counter the influence of right wing press.

The population of Lewes is nothing like 100,000 though, it's more like 16,000 isn't it?

I did try to answer this yesterday but had a server error.
There is a survey from 2011 on county website. (i think it covered u15's., so wasn't perfect) but like math guy I did ans estimate on 19k which lead to about 3600 under 18's (not including 18 yr olds NG@Maths.) This seems closer for the number of schools we have. But still a guess.
Perhaps :Lewes, Delaware has 100k people? I drove through Lewes, Delaware. It may have 100K people but they are VERY spread out!
But using MathGuys 21% figure (and Lewes Population at 19k), that gives us about 4,000 under 18's.
I am going to stick with my estimates of 3k to 3.5k because of our population base of older, middle class, and single sex couples (and yes, I know they have kids as well; so don't rant one me.).
I would think if you looked at all the ofstead reports for each school in Lewes (and Chailey and Ringmere) you may get a better number but how close do you need?

Ah ha... Well it seems that Nicky needs to say whether an estimate for Lewes town or the district is needed.

Based on average state school intakes per year, plus guesstimates on preschool and 16-18 yr olds (based on primary school intakes and priory leavers numbers), I have come up with a figure of 4470 0-18 year olds in immediate Lewes town area. I included Kingston and Rodmell schools.

According to the latest ONS figures there are about 19,700 under 18s in Lewes District. ONS do not calculate estimates at town level
