This dashboard presents census data for constituencies on residents’ country of birth.

The most recent census was carried out in March 2021 in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and in March 2022 in Scotland. This dashboard shows the results for constituencies across the UK.

For comparison, we have calculated UK averages for broad groups of countries (the UK, the European Union and the rest of the world) using 2021 data for England, Wales and Northern Ireland and 2022 data for Scotland. These figures are for comparative purposes, and don’t tell us about the population on a particular date.
