The number of EU citizens residing in the UK increased to 3 300 000 people.
More than 700,000 European immigrants have been accepted by Britain over the past five years. A significant proportion are citizens of six countries & ndash; Poland, Romania, Hungary, Spain, Italy and Portugal.
Migration in the European Union has become a politically sensitive issue immediately after the enlargement of the European Union in 2004 and the granting of freedom of movement of labor from the new EU member states.
Since then, Britain has seen unprecedented immigration from Eastern Europe. Over the past five years, the number of EU citizens residing in the UK has increased by almost 700,000 to 3,300,000 people.

The main share in the UK among immigrants from the EU is made up of citizens from six countries – Poland, Romania, Hungary, Spain, Italy and Portugal. Their number has increased by more than 500,000 between 2011 and 2015.
The report of the Migration Observatory states that 49% of immigrants from 700 000 were citizens of Poland and Romania, 24% from Spain, Italy and Portugal. For example, the number of Spanish immigrants to the UK increased in 2015 by 117% compared with 2011.
During the same period, Spain, Italy and Portugal together lost nearly 1,000,000 jobs.
Slightly more than 70% of EU citizens immigrating to the UK for at least one year, say they come looking for work, more than half of them have already got a job and are ready to start it.
The latest official data at the end of September 2015 show that the estimated net annual migration of EU citizens to the UK is 172,000.
Researchers note that one of the permanent factors contributing to immigration to the UK is English, which is studied in most European countries. But there are other reasons for the EU citizens to move to the UK. Researchers emphasize that it is economic factors (high unemployment in Southern Europe and low wages in Eastern Europe) that are likely to be the key migration factors.
Before the upcoming referendum on UK membership in the European Union in June 2016, migration is a central topic in the debate.
According to the forecasts made in the report of the Migration Observatory, immigration is unlikely to significantly decrease if Britain withdraws from the EU, since other major developed countries with low unemployment outside the EU (Canada, Norway and Switzerland) have also had high migration in the last five years.
