Analysts say the number of EU citizens living in the UK will drop from 3.7 million to 3.5 million by 2020. According to them, the decision of the people to leave the island country was probably affected by factors such as corona virus and Brexit epidemics, i.e. withdrawal from the British Union.
An ONS spokesman for the PA news agency said: “Decisions to immigrate are complex. A person’s decision to immigrate or leave the UK is always affected by a variety of factors, including social and economic factors.”
“The behavior and decisions of non-British people living in the UK may be affected by the epidemic, along with other factors such as the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. The spokesman added.
Most are poles
The current population of the country is estimated at 66.282 million. Most non-British natives are still polar, 738,000 of them. This is followed by Romanians, 384,000, Irish, Indians and Italians. India is the most common country of birth with a population of 880,000 outside the United Kingdom. It is followed by Poland with 691,000 inhabitants, followed by Pakistan, Ireland and Romania.
London is still a large part of the non-British and non-British population. Non-British people make up 37 per cent of Londoners and non-British people 22 per cent of the capital’s population.
