In this chart provisional rolling year data are produced quarterly and are shown in a shaded area. Provisional data are for year ending (YE) March (q1), YE June (q2), YE September (q3) and YE December (q4). All other figures are final calendar year estimates of LTIM.
This chart is not consistent with the revised total net migration estimates as shown in Figure 2. Refer to Section 10: Revisions to net migration estimates in light of the 2011 Census.
Figures up to and including 1990 are IPS only, and from 1991 onwards are LTIM.
Users are encouraged to review the published tables for confidence intervals and an insight into the inherent uncertainty in these statistics.
