Ukraine: analysis and statistics

A collection of analysis and statistics relating to Ukraine.

Ukraine sponsorship scheme statistics

These publications summarise the latest Scotland-level data and information on people displaced by the war in Ukraine arriving through the UK ‘Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme’, which includes those sponsored by the Scottish Government (also known as the Scottish Super Sponsor) and Individual Sponsors.

These reports gather together various data sources, including operational data from welcome accommodation teams and local authorities across Scotland, the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (COSLA) and the Scottish Government (SG).

This data includes the number of displaced people from Ukraine that are in welcome accommodation, and, where applicable, the progress on matching displaced people from Ukraine with a host. This data complements published information on the numbers of applications, visas and arrivals of displaced people from Ukraine to Scotland and the other three UK nations, already regularly published by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC).

These reports accompany the experimental statistics tables on the Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme in Scotland.

This statistical release has been designated as new experimental statistics which has not been assessed by the UK Statistics These reports provide data on visas, arrivals, matches and accommodation. They are not full accounts of all displaced people from Ukraine. Displaced people with visas are free to enter the country and live and work where they want. Not everyone entering the UK through the Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme (including those sponsored by the Scottish Government) will need accommodation provided to them. They may make their own arrangements, including renting their own accommodation or staying with friends and family. Some arrivals may have also self-matched with a volunteer host, assisted by a charity or support network. Those arrivals may never be in contact with a welcome hub or local authority seeking accommodation. We do not collect data on this subset of displaced people from Ukraine.

Expressions of interest data reconciliation exercise

We conducted a data reconciliation project to gather updates on the checking, matching and availability statuses of expressions of interest to host shared with local authorities. Local authorities returned data on expressions of interest between November 2022 and January 2023.
