By the look of it, man and van removal companies have their work cut out for them – population statistics for Great Britain, and particularly England show notable surge in population in recent time, indicating that the southeast and southwest portions of UK are becoming more and more crowded with every year. In terms of population growth, the last fifteen years have turned out to be as follows:
- The rapid growth of population in UK is due to high migration rates;
- Since the year 2000, net migration to UK, along with babies born to foreigner parents have formed 85% of the overall increase in population;
- Using a ‘high-migration scenario’ model, Great Britain’s population is projected to rise by half a million people per annum, in perspective – a new city the size of Liverpool appears on the map every year;
- 75% of this half a million population increase will be by migrants and their children born in UK;
Since 2000, Great Britain has seen a steady annual increase in immigration, which in turn has caused growing population numbers. In the last 90 years, Great Britain has seen other similar increases of population, though none have been due to mass immigration to the country.
The most overcrowded part of Great Britain is England. In the last fifteen years, England has accommodated the largest number of immigrants, which has brought the country’s population density to 410 people per square kilometre, slightly lower than that of India. The population density figure for England is twice as high as that of Germany, and three and a half times higher than that of France. If the migration influx continues at the same pace, it is just a matter of years before large portions of UK will become overcrowded.
