Immigrants to the United Kingdom can be divided into five major groups. Some are citizens of the U.K. and colonies or of the Commonwealth, Dependencies and Protectorates. Others are ‘aliens’, i.e. persons of foreign nationality. In this chapter an immigrant is taken to be anyone born outside the British Isles of whatever nationality and resident (i.e. not a visitor in the terms of the Census) in England and Wales.
