      UK Migration

      Migrants from the Indian sub-continent are more likely to settle in the UK than those from wealthier countries, a report has found.
      People coming to the UK from India, Bangladesh and Pakistan were "much more likely to stay permanently in the UK" than migrants from the wealthier Old Commonwealth countries, the Home Office-commissioned report into emigration said.
      It also found that Britons with professional and managerial jobs were leaving the UK in increasing numbers, accounting for more than half of all those who left in 2010, up from about a third in 1991.
      Net migration to the UK, the number of people entering less those leaving, stands at about 216,000 with the Government aiming to cut this to the tens of thousands by 2015.
      But the figures are not simply affected by the number of migrants coming to the UK.
      Instead, the proportion of migrants "coming from different areas of the world and the extent to which their migration tends to be circular or permanent" also plays a key role, the report said.
      Just 10% of migrants to the UK from the Indian sub-continent in the 1980s and 1990s left within two years of arriving, and only 15% left within five years, figures showed.
      But 44% of migrants from Australia and New Zealand left the UK within two years of arriving, probably due to the "large numbers arriving on two-year, young persons' working visas", and 57% within five years.
      Two-thirds of those from the USA and Canada also emigrated from the UK within five years, the report added.
      Other studies found more migrants from the Indian sub-continent settled in the UK compared with migrants from Australia, New Zealand and the USA.

      Probably to do with people coming to the UK for different purposes such as to gain a better standard of living as opposed to for the experience or a working holiday/office relocation etc
