The statistics in this section are for flow–based migration estimates, which show people moving to or from an area. These statistics are for the year to 30 June (mid-year) and are produced as part of the overall Mid-Year Population Estimates, which are designated as national statistics.
There is a cross-GSS programme of work, being led by the Office for National Statistics (ONS), to transform migration statistics through greater use of administrative data. During this period of development, the international migration estimates have been classified as experimental statistics.
