UK: Migration Statistics Quarterly Report, August 2015

Source: Office for National Statistics (UK)

From Press Release:

The latest provisional estimates of Long Term International Migration (LTIM) show that net migration stood at 330,000 in the year ending March 2015. This is up from 236,000 in the year ending March 2014. This is a statistically significant increase1.

636,000 people immigrated to the UK in the year ending March 2015, a statistically significant increase compared with 552,000 in the previous year. Emigration was stable with 307,000 people leaving the UK in the year ending March 2015 compared with 316,000 in the previous year.

Immigration of EU citizens (excluding British citizens) to the UK in the year ending March 2015 was 269,000, a statistically significant increase from 213,000 the previous year. The recent increase in EU immigration has partly been driven by EU2 (Bulgaria and Romania) citizens. Net migration of EU citizens (excluding British citizens) also showed a statistically significant increase to 183,000 in the year ending March 2015, from 130,000 the previous year.

The latest estimates of immigration of non-EU citizens show 284,000 non-EU citizens immigrating to the UK in the year ending March 2015, an increase (albeit not statistically significant) from 261,000 in the previous year. Net migration of non-EU citizens also showed a statistically significant increase to 196,000 in the year ending March 2015, from 157,000 in the previous year.
