London’s Poverty Profile

Migrants

Londoners born outside the UK

Key findings

38%

of Londoners were born outside the UK, compared to 11% in the rest of England.

220,000

people moved to London from outside the UK in 2014/15. This was an increase from 170,000 in the previous two years.

In 22

London boroughs, pupils who do not speak English as a first language are more likely to achieve GCSEs than those who do.

Overview

Only a limited amount of data about London includes information about people's migration status. Some very vulnerable migrants - such as asylum-seekers, undocumented migrants or trafficked people - are extremely unlikely to be visible in the figures we cover here. 

You may also be interested in data about BME Londoners, which will include some migrants.
