Jon Simmons, Home Office, gives a talk for the COMPAS breakfast briefing series.
Movements of people are undoubtedly difficult to measure and irregular or illegal activities more so. It is no wonder then that Migration statistics are often criticised and yet the United Kingdom has available to it a wide range of data on migration and arguably some of the best migration statistics in the world. At this breakfast briefing Jon Simmons will draw on the latest ONS statistics published at the end of August along with other sources to highlight some of the longer-term trends and provide some insights from the data. The talk will make the data accessible and should be of interest to both statistics experts and interested amateurs.
