Abstract

Recent Labour Force Survey data seem to suggest that around a million overseas-born people left Britain during the pandemic. But the survey now relies on recruiting respondents by phone, which those with less confident English may decline. Ian Gordon (LSE) says this break in the survey practice exaggerates the actual scale of ‘exodus’.
