The information requested falls within the responsibility of the National Statistician. I have asked him to reply.
Letter from L. Cook to Mr. N. Soames, dated
The information requested is provided in the attached table which shows the net migration estimates for non-EU nationals for 1992 to 2001. Two different estimates are shown in the table: (i) interim revised net migration estimates for non-EU nationals for 1992 to 2001 that take preliminary account of the 2001 Census results, and (ii) the original series of net migration estimates for non-EU nationals compiled prior to the results of the 2001 Census becoming available; it should be noted that the latter series has now been withdrawn.
The estimates shown in the table take account of dependants of asylum seekers. The Office for National Statistics are working closely with the Home Office to ensure that the best use is made of the recently available detailed Home Office information on dependants of asylum seekers in preparation of the revised international migration series which will be published in late Spring 2003. These revised estimates will be based upon more detailed information from the 2001 Census and further research work and will supercede the interim series included in the attached table.
|Year||Interim revised series(16)||Original series(17)|
|1993||+ 36.5||+ 72.5|
|1994||+ 58.7||+ 95.7|
|1995||+ 77.0||+ 116.7|
|1996||+ 69.0||+ 105.4|
|1997||+ 70.4||+ 110.8|
|1998||+ 105.6||+ 150.6|
|1999||+ 132.3||+ 182.5|
|2000||+ 165.0||+ 222.3|

(16) These estimates represent interim revised migration estimates, adjusted in light of first results of the 2001 Census. Further revisions to the series, in the light of more detailed 2001 Census data, will be made available in late Spring 2003. This table includes adjustments for asylum seekers, and for persons admitted as short-term visitors who are subsequently granted an extension of stay for other reasons—for example, as students or on the basis of marriage.
(17) These are the original published estimates for 1992–2000 compiled prior to the results of the 2001 Census being available. This series has now been withdrawn and superceded by the interim revised estimates released on
