ONS Local Area Migration Indicators Update

25 August 2017

The other set of migration data released yesterday was the 2016 Local Area Migration Indicators from the Office for National Statistics. These indicators can now be found on Northamptonshire Analysis in the ONS Migration Suite dataview.

Unlike the national news headlines, net long-term international migration (LTIM) in Northamptonshire remains on an upward trend. Net LTIM for the county as a whole stands at 6.6 persons per 1000 population for the year to end June 2016 up from 5.8 in the year to end June 2015. Amongst the boroughs and districts, the 2016 figures range from 12.3 net migrants / 1000pop in Northampton to 1.8 net migrants / 1000pop in Daventry. Northampton also shows the highest growth in net migration per 1000 population (impact), compared with both 2015 and also 2010.

Net internal migration (from other parts of the UK) into the county reveals an additional 3.0 residents per 1000 population for the year to end June 2016. Also in 2016, Daventry and East Northamptonshire have a net gain of 11.5 and 10.5 internal migrants (from other parts of the UK) respectively. On the other hand, more people are moving out of Northampton to other parts of the UK than are moving in.

International migrants registering for GP services in Northamptonshire have increased from 9348 in the year to end June 2015 to 9938 in the year to end June 2016, some 590 additional persons requiring services. Please note, however, this does not mean that all these people remain in the county, although a person can only register for GP services if they are staying in the UK for at least three months.
