Statistical information on the EU Settlement Scheme is published by the Home Office monthly and quarterly. The latest published information on applications received can be found on the Home Office’s ‘EU Settlement Scheme statistics’ web page available at: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/eu-settlement-scheme-statistics.

The monthly reporting on the EU Settlement Scheme has recently been changed to allow for more timely release of the figures on applications and outcomes, placed on the GOV.UK website.

The quarterly publication will continue to provide more detailed breakdowns, including data on nationality, UK country of residence, age group, and regional and local authority numbers. In future, we also plan to include numbers of non-digital (paper) applications and further analysis of application outcomes, including those applicants for pre-settled status who subsequently apply for full status.

In line with the Code of Practice for Statistics, the Home Office openly invites feedback from users to continue developing the quality, usefulness and presentation of statistics on the EU Settlement Scheme. Feedback is continually sought across our suite of Home Office immigration statistics, alongside regular internal consultation, and external engagement through multiple stakeholder channels.
