10 charts explaining the UK's immigration system
Net migration is the difference between the number of people arriving in the UK versus the number leaving, for at least 12 months.
This is what the government means when they talk about reducing net migration to the tens of thousands.
Although net migration is at its lowest point since early 2014, it still stands at 244,000.
Migrants make up a bigger proportion of the UK population now than they did in 2000.
While non-EU nationals have remained a fairly stable percentage of the population as a whole, EU nationals are making up an increased proportion.
This is due to the freedom of movement rules between EU member states.
