Co-ordinated Release of Population and Migration Outputs, November 2012
This forms part of a series of co-ordinated releases of population and migration data, and is part of a ‘coherent reporting’ programme for demographic statistics.
International Migration (see notes):
- The number of people from outside the UK entering Wales for 12 months or more was approximately 13,000 in 2011, compared to 15,000 in 2010 and 14,000 in 2009.
- The number of people leaving Wales for 12 months or more was approximately 14,000 in 2011, compared to 11,000 in 2010 and 13,000 in 2009.
- There was a net outflow of around 2,000 international migrants from Wales in 2011, compared to a net inflow of 4,000 in 2010 and 1,000 in 2009. This is the first time there has been a net outflow of international migrants from Wales since 1993.
Information and data published jointly today includes:
- Migration Statistics Quarterly Report, November 2012. This summarises the different quarterly datasets and provides key messages from the latest data.
Further information and data published today by the ONS includes:
- Long-Term International Migration (LTIM), 2011 (UK level).
Further information and data published today by the Home Office includes:
- Immigration Statistics - July - September 2012
Further information and data published today by the NRS includes:
- Quarterly update to Migration between Scotland and the Rest of the UK
Further information and data published today by the NISRA includes:
- Long-term International Migration Estimates for Northern Ireland - 2010-11
1. Long Term International Migration is the only estimate of long-term civilian migration covering both flows to and from the UK.
2. A long-term international migrant is defined as someone who changes his or her country of usual residence for a period of at least 12 months (UN definition). These figures do not include estimates of short-term migrants (those moving country for less than 12 months).
3. Long Term International Migration estimates are primarily based on the International Passenger Survey. The sample size for Wales is very small, and therefore the estimates (particularly outward international migration) are very volatile. We are continuing to work with ONS on improving population and migration statistics.
4. Figures may not sum due to rounding.
5. ONS in partnership with other organisations have a long-term programme of work on improving migration and population statistics, and as a result international migration figures from 2002-2008 were revised in May 2010.
