In the census statistics on migration, and in the analysis above, a person is classified as a migrant if the address they lived at on Census Day (27 March 2011) differed from the address they lived at one year before. A (randomly selected) half of the babies aged under 1 year of migrant parent(s) were also classified as migrants.
