Grants by conclusion type and nationality will be published in the next detailed quarterly release later this month. Data to 31 December 2019 can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/eu-settlement-scheme-quarterly-statistics-december-2019
The latest figures, including applications by EU nationality, can be found in the Home Office’s ‘EU Settlement Scheme monthly statistics’ available at: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/eu-settlement-scheme-statistics-march-2020
The published figures refer specifically to applications made to the EU Settlement Scheme and cannot be directly compared with ONS estimates of the resident population of EU/EEA nationals in the UK. The published EUSS figures include non-EEA family members, Irish nationals, and eligible EEA citizens not resident in the UK, none of whom are usually included in ONS estimates of the resident EU population. Furthermore, the population estimates do not take account of people’s migration intentions and will include people who have come to the UK for a range of purposes, including some who have no intention to settle in the UK.
