Please note that the version of the Local Area Migration Indicators Suite published on 29 August 2013 omitted an important footnote to the Migration Flows table stating that the international migration estimates shown do not include asylum seekers for the years mid -2004 to mid-2011. The table has now been updated at 13:30pm on 13/12/2013 to include asylum seekers in those estimates. The previous error does not affect any other migration products.
