Migration maps

We can provide migration data maps of our 21 individual local authority areas to partner organisations in Yorkshire and Humber. There are 2 types of map available, census and asylum maps and new arrivals maps.

1  Census and asylum maps

These maps are available with a choice of 3 data sources:

  • Migrant residents [source: Census 2011]  The census counted the number of residents in March 2011. The meaning of ‘migrant’ in each map will depend on what category/question from the Census you choose.
  • Asylum seekers [source: COMPASS]  This shows the number of supported asylum seekers at the end of May 2014. This excludes anyone staying with family/friends, unaccompanied asylum seeking children [UASC], those in Initial Accommodation prior to dispersal, and refused asylum seekers who are not being supported by the Home Office. 
  • Migration projections [source: ONS]  These projections were made using data for 2016. They concern long-term migrants [people who move home for more than a year]. They provide an average of the projected annual figures for 2016-2041.

2  New arrivals maps

These maps provide an overview of recent migration trends in individual local authority areas at a detailed geographical scale. They illustrate the geographical settlement of new migrants using data about people who registered for a national insurance number [NINO] in 2017.  Maps are available to show accession, EU, non-EU and individual nationalities [top 50 in Yorkshire and Humber] and divided geographically by Middle layer Super Output Area [MSOA].

The maps use information from the Department for Work and Pensions [DWP] regarding non-British nationals who successfully applied for a NINO in 2017, as a proxy for new arrivals.  Most new arrivals need to apply for a NINO in order to work or claim benefits; because of this, the main groups that this dataset does not cover are children under 16 and asylum seekers.
