Net migration to UK saw an increase of 18% compared to the previous year, Office for National Statistics (ONS) has revealed.
The first point that need to be highlight, is the reason why so many people move to UK every year. In spite of the common claim that most of them come to gain some benefits or, more simply, to ‘steal’ wealth, the truth is behind the raw data. The majority of them move to UK to work or to study. In both cases, honestly paying their taxes.
Last data realised by Office for National Statistics (ONS), revel that nearly 75% of the total net migration last year was related to formal study reasons.
The following chart, shows the top five reasons of the total amount of people moving in during 2013.
In light of these figures, it’s quite obvious that is the school (or University) of this country which attracts all those people, rather than the state benefit system.
Another supporting data, is given by the age of the people coming in. As the pie chart below shows, more than 2/3 of the people who moved in last year, is aged between 15 and 24: usually a time for studying.
