People Movement and Migration

Date published: 02 May 2019


On Tuesday 31 August 2021 NISRA published a slide pack and infographic providing a summary of migration in Northern Ireland and the movement of people and transport between Northern Ireland, Ireland and Great Britain. 


They combine data outputs from the Northern Ireland Census 2011, the Ireland Census 2011, and the Labour Force Survey to detail the current level of migration in Northern Ireland. Following from this Higher Education Statistics, Tourism Statistics, Department for Infrastructure Transport Modelling, the CSO Cross Border Shopping Module and Mobile Network Operator Data will be used to highlight the complex people and vehicle crossings along the Northern Ireland and Ireland border. It is planned this will be further updated when more data becomes available.
