Indians now UK's biggest overseas born population

Data released by Office of National Statistics on Friday shows that the number of Indians living in UK is four times more than the Chinese and Americans, over three times more than those of Bangladeshi and German origin and two times more than those from Ireland.

The number of Indians have grown by half since 2004 with 7.6 lakh of them living in UK now. India is followed by those of Polish origin (8.88 lakhs), Pakistani (5.16 lakh), Irish (3.78 lakhs), German (2.97 lakhs) and Bangladeshis (2.28 lakhs).


Quite interesting that Indians are 4 times more than Chinese. Looks like the Chinese dont prefer the UK as much as the Indians.

I am pretty sure the mass immigration in the 50s/60s probably influenced this.

Lots of folk probably have family connections, same with Pakistani folks.

I am surprised how many Germans live in UK though , more than Bangladeshi :o :o :o

The majority of Chinese in UK have their roots in Hong Kong I expect , though after the 1997 debacle , I think they switched to Aus/Canada as places to go when UK Govt didnt give them residency rights.
