Number of foreign-born by local area district
The first three maps show the projected number of foreign-born residents across local areas of England in 2014 by country of birth. Three broad groupings are used for countries of birth (old EU, new EU, non-EU). These are followed by a series of projection tables. The final map shows the foreign-born share of the total usual resident population in each local area within England and Wales, based on the 2011 Census results.
The first three maps and tables were created using a Migration Observatory methodology enabling the extrapolation or projection of detailed local data on immigration in England for 2014. The figures for 2014 are not official statistics from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) and only intend to provide an idea of the likely number of foreign-born residents in different local areas of England as of 2014. The limitations are explained in more detail here.
Note: Darker shades show higher number of migrants, lighter shades show lower number. Hovering over or clicking on a local area will show the Census and extrapolation figures.
|Region||Foreign-born 2011 Census||Foreign-born 2014 extrapolation||2014-2011 difference||2014-2011 % difference|
|Yorkshire and the Humber||465,000||514,000||49,000||11%|
|Average across regions||63,000||10%|
Table 2 - EU-born residents
|Region||EU-born 2011 Census||EU-born 2014 extrapolation||2014-2011 difference||2014-2011 % difference|
|Yorkshire and the Humber||131,000||158,000||27,000||21%|
|Average across regions||41,000||20%|
Table 3 - Non EU-born residents
|Region||Non EU-born 2011 Census||Non EU-born 2014 extrapolation||2014-2011 difference||2014-2011 % difference|
|Yorkshire and the Humber||334,000||356,000||22,000||7%|
|Average across regions||22,000||6%|
Note: Darker shades show higher concentration of migrants, lighter shades show lower concentration. Hovering over or clicking on a local area will show the number and share of non-UK born in that area.
