Characteristics of recent and established EEA and non-EEA migrants in Scotland: Analysis of the 2011 Census
This publication contains analysis of the 2011 Census data on the characteristics of migrants, i.e. Scottish residents with a country of birth outside the UK. Findings are presented for recent EEA, recent non-EEA, established EEA and established non-EEA migrant groups. EEA countries included EU member countries (excluding the UK) and Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein. The non-EEA category included all other countries of birth, including Croatia which was not a EU member at the time of the 2011 Census. The report further distinguishes those migrants who have arrived in the UK 10 years or longer ago (‘established’) and those migrants who arrived in the 10 years prior to the 2011 Census (‘recent’). The topics covered include origin and length of residence; personal and household characteristics, including language; geographic area and accommodation; education and employment; and health.
