IRiS are holding a workshop on Wednesday 9 October 2013 from 10.00 am until 11.30 am in Room 415, Muirhead Tower. This workshop, led by Dr Carlos Vargas-Silva from the Migration Observatory, will provide a discussion of the key statistics from the 2011 Census for the West Midlands, and its constituent districts and unitary authorities.

The workshop will provide information about population levels; the number, population share, age, gender and labour market outcomes of foreign-born residents, as well as countries of origin, main languages and passports held. The workshop will also compare the West Midlands to other regions of England and Wales and the 2001 and 2011 Census results.
