Destination UK Born Abroad - An immigration map of Britain Born Abroad: An immigration map of Britain
Non-EU states in W Europe
 

Overview
This was a new category in the 2001 Census and therefore there is no directly comparable data from 1991.
It includes some 73,000 people born in Andorra, Gibraltar, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Malta, Monaco, Norway, San Marino and Switzerland.

Their British resident populations are in proportion to the size of their national populations, so there will be more Norway-born people in Britain than San Marino-born.

Although the two largest nations on the list, Norway and Switzerland, are not members of the European Union, their citizens have wide rights to come to Britain under the agreements both nations have with EU members.

Map on right shows country as if areas with roughly equal populations were the same size. So, densely populated London takes up much more space than sparsely populated Scottish Highlands.

At-a-glance
73,439 people born in Western European nations outside of the EU were recorded in the 2001 Census some 0.13% of the population.
16,966 of these were resident in London representing 0.24% of the capital's population.
