This is such a good explanation of the census data on the foreign-born component of the ‘usually resident’ population that I felt I had to share it. Really good work by the Office of National Statistics. It is a five minute look at the data with some very simple but effective visualisation to explain what has changed.


For the other videos explaining other aspects of the census data, see here. Really good use of modern media. Better than, say, the UK Border Agency one where they crush the people smuggler or the Operation Mayapple one of black or brown people being collared in ethnic minority areas.
