The Alcohol, Entertainment and Late Night Refreshment Licensing Statistical Bulletin, under the provisions of the Licensing Act 2003, collects the number of premises licences and club premises certificates.

The following table shows the number of licensed premises per 1,000 of the population of Birmingham as at 31 March 2007, 2008 and 2009.

Premises licences and club premises certificates per 1,000 population
2007 2.9

The number of licences in 2007 has been adjusted by mid-2007 population estimates (produced by the Office for National Statistics), the number of licences in 2008 and 2009 have both been adjusted by mid-2008 population estimates (latest available estimates).
