User guide: European Union Settlement Scheme [EUSS] data dashboard

The Migration Yorkshire European Union Settlement Scheme [EUSS] dashboard presents an area profile for each local authority area in Yorkshire and Humber.

It will be updated every quarter when new data is released by the Home Office usually in the last week of February, May, August and November.

Watch this detailed video user guide for more support on how to use the dashboard.

What’s covered in the dashboard?

The data covers all applications and concluded cases for the scheme. It includes repeat applications, repeat outcomes from repeat applications, late applications and family members that are non-EEA nationals.

The data is not intended to provide an estimate of the EU population but can be used to highlight patterns and trends in local areas.

In the absence of local level data, national data about the nationality of non-EEA applications, repeat applications and outcome by nationality is presented to complete the picture.

How do you operate the dashboard?

The dashboard has been designed to be viewed on a laptop or desktop screen and is less compatible on mobile screens.

The dashboard presents differently based on the zoom level of your browser. To see the tabs for all the visualisation included in each section set your browser zoom level between 75% and 90%. If you have difficulty reading the text or seeing the visualisations you can increase the zoom level, however the tabs will disappear and you will have to click the arrows to browse through the visualisations in each section.

We encourage you to view visualisations in full screen mode to ensure the complete text, visualisation and labels are clearly visible. You can do this by clicking the maximise icon [circle with arrows which appears at the top right of the visualisation when you hover over it] and minimise again by clicking the same icon.

Dashboard structure

The dashboard is laid out in a similar structure to other Migration Yorkshire dashboards, with:

  • a panel at the left of the screen including information about the time period the profile covers, a link to the original data source [in case you want to download data separately], what is and isn’t included in the dashboard, some brief instructions, links to detailed video and text user guides and other Migration Yorkshire data and statistics outputs and details about our funder the European Union Asylum Migration and Integration Fund.
  • a header at the top of the screen including three filters which you can use to select the local authority, city region or sub region you want to view.
    • You can only select one area in one filter at a time, the remaining filters need to stay on Yorkshire and Humber - otherwise the dashboard presents ‘no data’ or incorrect data.
    • Data may take some time to load if the dashboard is being used by many people at the same time [a spinning wheel appears in the visualisation]. It will be rare for this to happen, however if it does, you are advised to wait for the data to load or click refresh.
  • The profile for Yorkshire and Humber opens by default [figures in the Yorkshire and Humber profile are a sum or average of local authority figures so these may slightly differ from other regional totals published].

Sections of the dashboard

The main body of this dashboard has four sections.

The top left section provides information about the number of applications received since the start of the scheme in August 2018 for the selected area. Click on the tabs at the bottom of the section to see:

  • a comparison of Yorkshire and Humber local authorities and UK regions and nations.
    • Information and guidance about data and interactivity is provided at the bottom of visualisations when applicable.
    • You can hover over data points in any visualisation to view a data label.
    • Consider viewing these types of visualisations in full screen mode if all local authority or region/nation names are not visible.
  • a breakdown of applications by age group and a comparison of age groups across Yorkshire and Humber local authorities.
  • a breakdown of applications by nationality and a comparison of nationality groups across Yorkshire and Humber local authorities.
    • You can scroll through the legend to browse all data in the visualisation.

The top right section provides information about the number of applications per 1,000 of the population since August 2018, including a comparison of Yorkshire and Humber local authorities and UK regions and nations.

  • This standardised rate allows you to make direct comparisons between different areas.
  • The latest Office of National Statistics mid-year population estimate is used to calculate this ratio.

The lower left section provides information about the number of cases concluded and outstanding up to the latest quarter. It also presents:

  • a comparison of Yorkshire and Humber local authorities and UK regions and nations.
  • a breakdown of outcomes and a comparison of outcomes across Yorkshire and Humber local authorities.

The lower right section of the dashboard includes:

  • a map illustrating various data sources about the EUSS on local authority, regional, EU and world maps. We recommend you view this visualisation in full screen mode to see maps and pop-up windows clearly. To interact with the map:
    • click the layers list [top right, third diamond icon] to view different map layers.
    • click the eye icon to switch a layer on or off. We recommend you view only one layer at a time, otherwise the map becomes hard to read with overlapping layers.
    • click the legend list [top right, second bullet list icon] to see how data has been categorised.
    • click any area on the map to view a brief area summary.
    • zoom and drag with your mouse to navigate around the map, use the zoom buttons and click the home button [top right, first house icon] to return to the default Yorkshire and Humber view.
  • tabs including national data because data is not available at local level. They include charts showing the:
    • nationality of non-EEA applicants in the UK since August 2018.
    • percentage of repeat applications by each nationality in the UK up to the latest quarter.
    • outcomes by nationality in the UK up to the latest quarter.
  • Non-EEA is counted as UK in visualisations in this section. However, in the visualisations showing breakdown of non-EEA nationalities - Stateless, Refugees, British Overseas Citizens, Other and Unknown nationalities are counted as UK and Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan have been counted with China.

Unfortunately, there is no functionality to download data from the visualisations; you can refer to the link to the original data source in the side panel if you require this.

You can use the snipping tool or print screen functions on your device to take copies of any visualisation [ensure the time period and what is covered or not covered in the data from the side panel is included to avoid confusion].

There is a lot to take in at first sight. We would encourage you to take time to read or watch the user guides and familiarise yourself with the contents of each section [pay attention to areas selected in the filters, time periods, when data is at local, regional or national level, titles of charts and axes and supporting information at the bottom of the section].

We hope this dashboard is useful for you to learn about the European Union Settlement Scheme, influence policy and strategy and develop evidence-based services.

This is a new method for Migration Yorkshire to share data and statistics. We’d appreciate hearing your feedback and comments, please contact
