What the migration figures mean

The population of England has risen by 565,000 since 2011 because of immigration, a major analysis by the University of Oxford estimates.

Two-thirds of the rise is attributed to people from the European Union.

The Migration Observatory unit says it came up with the projections because similar official data will not be available before the general election.

Carlos Vargos-Silva who worked on the analysis explained more about the figures.
