Detail

The Home Office commissioned a new question in the Labour Force Survey (LFS) and Annual Population Survey (APS) in 2010 asking residents born outside the UK their ‘Main reason for coming to the UK’.

This report uses the recently commissioned question to analyse the current labour market position for the stock of UK residents born outside of the UK, regardless of whether they are now UK citizens or still foreign nationals, by their original purpose for migrating to the country.
