2001 Census - migration
- 130,158 people (12.3% of the population) had a different address one year before the census. Of these, 10.3% had moved from outside the UK.
- The highest proportions of migrants were in Guildford and Runnymede (both 16%), probably due to the student population.
- The population was more mobile than at the time of the 1991 Census when only 10.6% of the population had moved within the previous year.
- Overall there was a net-out migration of 2,675 between Surrey and the rest of the UK. By contrast, there was a net in-migration of 1,272 during the year before the 1991 Census. As there are no figures for the number moving out of the UK, the overall net migration cannot be calculated.
- The biggest net loss is from Surrey Heath and only Guildford, Reigate & Banstead and Runnymede had a net gain of population.
Note that the counting of students was different in the 1991 Census and some of the differences between 1991 and 2001 will be due to this change.
