Long-Term International Migration Statistics

Estimates of long-term international migration for Northern Ireland

Following the reclassification of the Migration Statistics Quarterly Report published by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) as Experimental Statistics we would like to make our users aware that Northern Ireland migration estimates remain unaffected. Migration estimates for Northern Ireland are produced using administrative data and do not rely on the International Passenger Survey as part of the production process.

If you would like to know more about why the ONS has moved to experimental statistics during its period of development, please see this statement by the ONS Director General, Iain Bell.
