Origin-Destination Statistics (updated 22 July)

There has been a change to the ONS origin destination release planned for Friday 25 July 2014.  As a result of our quality assurance procedures, we have identified an issue with the census data provided to ONS in relation to the estimates of migration in Scotland.  As a result, the following UK tables will now be published at a later date:

Origin and destination of migrants by age group by sex

Origin and destination of international migrants by age group by sex

Origin and destination of international migrants (expanded country origin)

Origin and destination of people who moved from a student term time/ boarding school address in the year before the census by age by sex by student status

The three UK workplace tables are not affected and will be published as planned.  They are:

Location of usual residence and place of work by sex

Location of usual residence and place of work by age

Location of usual residence and place of work by method of travel to work

The above issue also affects 5 data tables (cubes) and 1 quality table (cube) previously supplied to Eurostat. The Eurostat material is being removed from the Eurostat Census Hub and will be replaced when the issue has been resolved.

We apologise for the inconvenience this might cause and, alongside ONS, will update users in due course.  It is important to note this issue does not impact upon any other census tables previously published by NRS nor any other population or migration estimates published by NRS.

More information on the origin-destination data can be found on the ONS website, at http://www.ons.gov.uk/ons/guide-method/census/2011/census-data/2011-census-prospectus/release-plans-for-2011-census-statistics/subsequent-releases-of-specialist-products/flow-data/index.html
