UK: 1 in 6 Residents In England And Wales Are First Generation Foreign Nationals

More than one in six people living in England and Wales are first generation foreign nationals, and migration accounted for the majority of the country’s 3.5 million population increase since 2011, according to the latest census data.

The census attributes 42.5 percent of the population rise to a natural population increase — that is, the number of babies born subtracted by the number of deaths — and 57.5 percent to positive net migration which amounted to two million people.

Foreign nationals now account for 10 million of the countries’ 59.5 million population. In addition, nearly one out of every three babies born in the U.K. has a foreign-born mother.
