Experimental Official Research: Net Migration In Year To June 2020 Was 282,000

Acute uncertainty pervades the official measurement of immigration for a number of reasons. The abrupt cessation of the use of the tried-and-tested (albeit far-from-perfect) International Passenger Survey (IPS) for measuring immigration means that the latest estimates are based upon ‘experimental’ research derived from administrative data. Secondly, these figures cover the period including after the onset […]

Official Statistics Body May Have Under-counted Net Immigration Of Foreigners By 380,000 (2011-20)

The Office for National Statistics has produced experimental research which estimated that net immigration from overseas to the UK in the year to June 2020 was just over 282,000. Here are the key takeaways of the experimental and provisional research methodology which the ONS hopes to deploy for future estimates: Total net migration was 282,000 […]

Save Our Green Space By Restoring Sense To Immigration Policy

Figures released by the Department for Housing, Communities and Local Government show that we have lost nearly 12 square miles of supposedly protected green space per year since 2015 because of the rampant over-development that is partially linked to the failure to control immigration. The total land area in the green belt which was set […]

Immigration And Demand For Homes In England

Summary 1. After the Covid crisis, net migration levels could well revert to the high levels witnessed over the past five years, or even surpass them, given the range of additional uncapped routes being opened under the new Points Based System.  If so, just over half of extra homes needed in England by the early […]

Visa Grants In The Era Of Covid

Initial suggestions are that the visa grants during the Covid period (e.g. Q2 2020) were 90%+ lower than in Q2 2019 (see below). However, it is important to note that the pandemic’s impact on immigration, particularly on work-related immigration, should not be used as the basis for justifying plans that were drawn up long before […]

New Home Needed Every Three To Four Minutes

We will need to build a home every three to four minutes to accommodate ongoing rapid. immigration-driven population growth if the level of overseas net migration into England returns to the pre-lockdown level of about 230,000 per year. That is something that is likely given the government’s intentional plan to increase non-EU immigration as part […]

Some Impacts Of Very High Immigration – Factsheet For The United Kingdom

1. Net migration into the UK from overseas stands at 240,000 (year to September 2019 – see ONS bulletin). EU net migration has fallen by about 100,000 since 2016 but still stands at 64,000 more people coming than leaving.

Statistical Failures Should Not Obscure The Huge Gulf Between Politicians And The Public Over Immigration

By Alp Mehmet, Daily Telegraph, 22 August 2019 The public will rightly approach the new immigration figures, which estimate that 226,000 more long-term migrants moved here than departed in the year ending March 2019, with a healthy dose of scepticism.
