The internal migration propensities and net migration patterns of ethnic groups in Britain
Keywords:ethnic populations, whites, non-whites, internal migration, England, Wales, Britain
Internal migration propensities of ethnic groups are examined using three types of census data. Special Migration Statistics show variation in aggregate propensities whereas commissioned age-specific flow data indicate age variations by ethnic group. Micro data from Samples of Anonymised Records confirm low Asian propensities and suggest convergence between 1991 and 2001. Inter-district net migration reveals familiar counterurbanisation trends for whites but more complex patterns for non-whites. Evidence suggests white net migration at this scale is greater in areas with higher non-white population shares which themselves experience higher non-white immigration rates.
