Philip Rees is Professor Emeritus of Population Geography. He has taught and undertaken research on demographic issues for 45 years. His current interest is in the projection of the UK’s ethnic group populations. A 2007-2010 ESRC project funded the creation of a set of projections based on data from the 2001 census (www.ethpop.org). In a current project, funded by ESRC, these projections are being re-based using 2011 Census data and extended to all local authority areas in the UK. As part of these projections assumptions must be made about international migration, both immigration and emigration.
