Since May 2008 the Research and Performance Team has conducted ongoing research into the demographic impact of international migration in Cambridgeshire. This consists of a large initial report covering the period 2001 to 2006, and subsequent smaller monitoring reports, produced on an annual basis.

The most recent of these considers data from the 2013/14 financial year, and is available for download below along with the earlier reports.The latest report shows that in 2013, Cambridgeshire registrations for National Insurance Numbers (NINo) from migrant workers rose by 8% compared to 2012, to 8,884. This growth rate outstripped the 7% rise in UK NINo registrations in 2013. Registrations across Cambridgeshire’s districts varied. Cambridge City, which accounts for just under half of registrations, saw strong growth of 10%, as did East Cambridgeshire at 8%. Registrations in Huntingdonshire and South Cambridgeshire soared by more than 25%, whilst Fenland saw another year of falls (15% down).
