Housing: Migration

Volume 461: debated on Wednesday 20 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what recent estimate she has made of future net migration for the purpose of formulating household projections; and what her most recent estimate is of household formation attributable to net migration between 2004 and 2026. (137282)

The ‘2004-based’ household projections for England are derived from the Office for National Statistics’ population projections.

The 2004 based household projections show that the biggest factor is more people living alone and net migration accounts for 73,000 (33 per cent.) of the 223,000 annual household growth between 2004 and 2026.
