Outcomes and Integration

2.2. What do we know about other integration-related outcomes for migrants at the local level?

Data on aspects of integration beyond the labour market are not widely available at the local authority level (see ‘Evidence Gaps and Limitations’ in this guide). However, there are some exceptions:

Main Language at home in 2011

The Census includes information on main language used at home. Main language and English proficiency data are available for download from NOMIS for England and Wales (Table LC2803) and from NRS for Scotland.

The data available through NOMIS can also be broken down by age, sex and employment characteristics, although these tables cannot be used to examine the migrant population as they do not include UK and non-UK country of birth or nationality.

National curriculum assessment results for school-age children

Data on results in assessments at Key Stage 2 (taken typically at age 11) and GCSE (taken typically at age 16) are available from the Department for Education at the local authority level for pupils in England with English as an Additional Language. The data are unfortunately not broken down by country of birth or nationality.

Data Notes ?

Source: 2011 Census. Main language at home does not indicate proficiency in English. Language use changes over time, so figures from 2011 may not represent current trends.
