Little movement in migration figures

Earlier this year, we presented some key statistics on migration flows in and out of our five districts (see the original post here).  New data, for 2011, has now been published so we have updated our analysis.

As you might expect, in the course of a year there have not been significant changes in the underlying pattern of population flows.  Warwickshire continues to be a net importer of population from elsewhere in England & Wales, with 24,350 people moving into the county during 2010/11.  Approximately 20,500 residents left the county for elsewhere during the same period.  This means we gained around 3,800 residents from migratory movements in the course of a year.

Coventry continues to be the main source of people migrating into the county, with 3,800 making that move during 2010/11.  Around one in six people that move into Warwickshire from elsewhere in England & Wales come from Coventry.  The flow is not one way though, with 2,200 moving from Warwickshire to Coventry over the same period.

Aside from Coventry, the key migration flows are actually within Warwickshire itself. As with 2009/10, nearly 4,000 residents of the county moved from one district to another. This trend is particularly apparent between Warwick and Stratford-on-Avon Districts and North Warwickshire and Nuneaton & Bedworth Boroughs. In 2010/11, nearly 1,600 people moved between the two southern districts, and more than 800 moved between the two northern boroughs. There is very little movement north to south or vice versa.
