NIESR Press Note – NIESR reacts to latest Migration Statistics Quarterly Report

The National Institute’s Associate Research Director Dr Heather Rolfe said: “ONS migration statistics out today show a continuing downward trend in EU net migration. At 87,000 in the year ending March 2018 it stands at its lowest level since 2012. Since the referendum a number of trends have explained the fall in net EU migration. The current figures show a fall in citizens of western European countries coming to the UK with a job offer and a decline in citizens of EU8 countries coming to look for work.
