Migration in and out of London

Net migration in London from the Rest of England by age (2019)

This indicator shows the difference between the number of people arriving and leaving London, by different age groups. A negative number shows that there are more people leaving than arriving.

In 2019, London saw large net inflows of those aged between 20 and 24 (33,982 people) and a smaller flow for those aged between 25 and 29 (8,303 people). In contrast, net migration was negative for those aged below 19 and above 29. The largest negative net flow was for those between the age of 30 and 39, where 37,220 more people were leaving than arriving in London. This number gradually decreases as the age groups become older. 

Additionally those between the age of 0 and 4 see a large negative net migration of 17,537, which most likely refer to the families with children moving out of London and into the rest of England. 

Net migration in London only includes movement between London and the rest of England.
