European Migration to UK continually falls

European net migration was 87K in the year to the end of March 2018, according to Office for National Statistics data.

Overall net migration, the difference between the number of people coming to live in the United Kingdom for at least year and those leaving, was 270K.

The United Kingdom government wants to cut overall net migration to below 100K.

Some 226K, European citizens came to the United Kingdom and 138K, European citizens left in the year to the end of March.

“Much of the recent fall is in people from the western European countries that make up the ‘EU15’ group coming to the United Kingdom for a definite job,” said ONS statistician Nicola Rogers.

Labour Force Survey says from April to June 2018, there were 86K, fewer European nationals working in the United Kingdom than a year earlier.

That represents the largest annual fall since comparable records began in 1997.

Of those, the proportion of people aged from 16 to 64 years who were in work was 83.1% for European nationals, higher than that for United Kingdom nationals (75.5%) and non-European nationals (62.9%).

Meanwhile, the number of non-European nationals working in the UK raise by 74K to 1.27 million.
