Census map: Non-EU born residents as share of population across EU

28 Apr 2014

In 2011, there were also 5.3 million residents in the UK born outside of the EU – this was the second largest number in the UK, again following Germany. This represents 8.4% of the UK population, and places the UK in a slightly above-average position in terms of the non-EU born population share. This percentage was highest in Estonia, with 14% of the population born outside of the EU in 2011.
