Jon Simmons, Home Office Migration and Border Analysis, gives a talk for the COMPAS Breaskfast Breifing series

This briefing summarises research and analysis conducted by Home Office Science to provide further evidence on the social and public service impacts of migration at the local level. It examines migrant composition and impacts at the local, rather than the national, level. It presents a local authority typology, classifying all local authorities within England and Wales into twelve discrete groups, on the basis of key migration and socio-economic indicators, including the different migrant types (e.g. workers, students) and nationalities of migrants they have recently received. Additionally, the research examines impacts of different types of migrant, rather than focusing on migrants as a homogenous group. It considers impacts on different public services (e.g. health services and education) and the local economy.
