Impact of migration on the consumption of education and children's services and the consumption of health services, social care and social services

The main aims of the study were to estimate migrants' consumption of under-18 education, health and personal social services and the related costs and to assess the implications for UK immigration policy, particularly for the Points Based System (PBS). The study also aimed to identify the limitations to evaluating the impact and the potential for improving measurement. Given the interest in the PBS, the focus was non-EEA economic migrants (especially Tier 1 and 2 migrants) and Tier 4 migrants (students).
