Picture1

New statistics from the UK’s Office for National Statistics (ONS) shows that the UK continues to post strong population growth, with a net increase of just over 500,000 people between 2015 and 2016. Much of that growth was due to net immigration, but a greater number of births also helped to drive the increase.
