The UK Population Born Overseas


The Office for National Statistics has released a new interactive map which shows the number of people who were born overseas in each local authority area in the UK. The Non-UK Born Population Map uses a choropleth layer to show the percentage of the population in each local authority in 2017 who were born overseas.

My own local authority area in east London has the highest percentage of non-UK born citizens. 57% of the people in Newham were not born in the UK. London as a whole is the region with the highest percentage of the population being non-UK born. 38% of the population of London was born overseas.

The Non-UK Born Population Map also shows the change in the percentage of the non-UK born population in each local authority over the last ten years, the percentage of non-British nationals living in each area and the change in the percentage of non-British nationals in each area over the last ten years.

The map doesn't break down which countries the non-UK born population are from. Poland is the most common country of birth outside the UK. You can learn more about the countries where the UK's non-UK born population come from in the ONS's statistical bulletin, Population of the UK by country of birth and nationality: 2017.
