Home Office’s Immigration Statistics October – December 2012 release, has been published today, it provides the latest figures on those subject to immigration control. A notable change introduced with this release is that our entry clearance visa applications, resolutions, issues and refusals back to 2005 have been provided on a quarterly, rather than annual, basis in new tables be.01.q (by category) and be.02.q (by nationality) as well as new quarterly data by category by nationality in tables be.06.q.w to be.06.q.o.
This edition also contains a short article about ‘Foreign National Offenders in detention and leaving detention’ (see http://www.homeoffice.gov.uk/publications/science-research-statistics/research-statistics/immigration-asylum-research/foreign-national-offenders-13), this article sets out differences in detention periods between offenders and other detainees held in UKBA detention. This ‘short article’ is intended as additional analysis of our data to assist users in understanding the figures. We plan in future to publish further articles on a range of topics to assist users to better interpret immigration statistics.
