Shapira M & Wilinska M (2015) New migrants in Scotland from the EU: Analysis of the 2011 census. University of Stirling.
This short report summarises data from the 2011 census in Scotland to provide an overview of the socio-economic situation of new migrants into Scotland. We define new migrants as those who have arrived in Scotland within the last 10 years. We examine the housing, employment, education, identity and health of new migrants and compare their situation to that of settled EEA (European Economic Area) migrants who have been living in Scotland for 10 years or more. The particular focus of this report is on the differences and similarities between migrants from recent EU member states (EU8) and established EU member states (EU15).
