According to data collected by the Office for National Statistics, net long-term migration to the UK from the EU is at its lowest since the year ending March 2013.
Figures painted a picture that overall, about 280,000 more people came to the UK than left in 2017.
Emigration, which is the act of leaving the country you currently reside in to move to another country (often permanently), has gradually increased.
Net migration from countries outside the EU – the difference between the number of people coming to live in the UK and those emigrating – rose to 227,000, the highest since September 2010.
Therefore, positive net migration is still occurring, but geographically, a new trend is emerging.
