Internal migration is one of the main drivers of population change in Britain, with around 10% of the population changing residential address every year. Understanding the patterns of flows which characterise internal migration is a challenge, with, even at the relatively coarse local authority district level, some 166,000 possible combinations of origins and destinations.

This paper details a new migration-based area classification framework which offers the opportunity to reduce the complexity of internal migration flow patterns with advantages over more general purpose area classifications which fail to take sufficient account of migrants as a separate subset of an area's population. The paper will also report on the preliminary findings of a time series analysis of intercensal internal migration flows in Britain using this new classification framework.
