    EU migration to UK 'underestimated' by ONS - BBC News

    The level of migration from the EU to the UK has been underestimated by the Office for National Statistics from the mid-2000s to 2016.

    As a result, the status of the immigration figures compiled by the ONS has been downgraded to "experimental".



    Who expected this?
    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.

    Around 250,000 of these results are used to form an estimate for the people either arriving to live in the UK or leaving the UK for at least a year.
    However, the IPS does not cover all ports, all of the time, and the sample works out at just over 1% of Heathrow's annual traffic of 78 million people.
    Looks like they’re still having trouble with their maths.
