immigrants coming out of ship

Immigration is the buzzword.. and it has always been and will be ... even if we go and settle on Mars one day. Not a day passes and both sides on leave referendum are coming up with theories. we just looked into some stats and wanted to share with readers to provide them a better picture to help them decide.


Total moves

Moves between local authorities in England and Wales

In the year between July 2013 and June 2014, there were an estimated 2.85 million residential moves between local authorities in England and Wales. This compares with 536,000 international immigrants who arrived in England and Wales and 287,000 international emigrants who left England and Wales during that period.

Total moves between local authorities in England and Wales, years ending June 2002 to June 2014

  1. In the year ending June 2009, a local government reorganisation reduced the total number of local authorities in England and Wales from 376 to 348. This meant that from that year onwards, any moves between the former constituent parts of the merged authorities were excluded from the statistics.
  2. In the year ending June 2012, new methods were introduced to improve the adjustment for study-related moves

Focusing Only on England

ONS analysis of the age and sex of internal migrants into and out of London for the year ending June 2013.
In June 2013 the estimated population of London was 8.4 million (ONS, 2014). Over the previous 12 months an estimated 197,000 internal migrants moved into London and 252,000 moved out, the highest inflow and outflow of all English regions. This resulted in a net outflow of 55,000.

Figure 1 shows London inflows, outflows and netflows by age, for males and females separately, for the year ending June 2013. The orange line shows the number of people who moved into London (inflow) and the blue line shows the number of people who moved out of London (outflow). The green bar shows the netflow.

Notes:

  1. Netflow = Inflow - Outflow
  2. Age of internal migrants is based on age at mid-2013 (specifically 30 June) rather than age at date of move. Many people’s age at mid-2013 will have been one year older than when they moved. For this reason moves at age 0 have been excluded from the chart.
