Flow Data Information System
Where a time-series of UK internal migration flows were not previously available, the DEMIFER team at the University of Leeds produced a set of estimates based principally on publicly available inter district Patient Register flows (supplied by ONS), but also incorporating inter-government office region UK migration data from the National Health Service Central Register (NHSCR - also supplied by ONS) and distributions from the 2001 Census Special Migration Statistics.
DEMIFER have produced two sets of estimates - one set running from mid-year to mid-year and one set covering calendar years.
For a detailed methodology describing the exact estimation process, see Dennett, A and Rees, P. (2009) Estimates of internal migration flows for the UK, 2000-2007 - details in the Papers section of this website
* Note - as these data are estimates not all flows will be integers, some will be decimal values *

The data are available for the following geographies:
|Geographies of origin areas||Geographies of destination areas|
|NUTS 2 UK Regions||NUTS 2 UK Regions|
|Supported via aggregation|
Output for geographies that are only supported via aggregation will take longer than for those supported directly
