Executive Summary

This evidence annex sets out the main elements of the most robust data we have on migration and migrants in Scotland. The paper supports the Scottish Government's response to the call for evidence by the UK Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) on the economic and social impacts of the UK's exit from the EU, and on how the UK's immigration system should be aligned with a modern industrial strategy.

The introductory section sets the context for the evidence base on migration into Scotland. The three chapters then respond to the themes identified in the MAC call for evidence: migration trends; EU workers in Scotland's key sectors; economic, social and fiscal impacts.
