Destination UK Born Abroad - An immigration map of Britain Born Abroad: An immigration map of Britain
Luxembourg
 

Overview
It may be one of the smallest nations in the world but Luxembourg is no less likely to produce migrants than any other.

With a population of just under half a million, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg has seen just 1,200 of those born within its landlocked borders head for Britain.

So small is the number of Luxembourg-born people recorded in the 2001 Census, they represent about one in every 47,000 people in the total population.

Geographically, they are predominantly in London with a handful of other clusters (none numbering more than 50 people) around universities.
