Abstract:Total inflows to the United Kingdom in 2009 were 528 000, a slight decrease with respect to 2008. As outflows from the United Kingdom decreased substantially (from 409 000 to 337 000), total net migration rose by almost 50%, to 191 000, which is nevertheless still lower than pre‐crisis levels. Most of the change in net migration is explained by the increase in inflows and decrease in outflows of British citizens.
