Our Live in Guardian Nationalities

According to the office for national statistics, non-UK born, and non-British nationals continued to increase in 2017. The increase in non-UK populations in the last few years has been largely accounted for by EU populations.

Contrary to the popular belief, our Live in Guardian Nationalities are not only foreign but the majority are English or British. The Natural questions you may ask now is: is there a difference between British and English? Yes, there is!

Background

According to the office for national statistics, non-UK born, and non-British nationals continued to increase in 2017. The increase in non-UK populations in the last few years has been largely accounted for by EU populations. (summary)

Many people think that ‘English’ is the same as the ‘British’, it’s not! People who are English are from the country of England. On the other hand, British people are people who live in Great Britain (Britain) and the United Kingdom. Although everyone in the United Kingdom has a British citizenship they have different nationalities.

But for the count for our Live-in Guardian Nationalities, we have combined the British and the English in one!

The top ten countries of origin by country of birth and nationality, UK 2017 are as follows;

  1. Poland
  2. India
  3. Pakistan
  4. Ireland
  5. Romania
  6. Germany
  7. Bangladesh
  8. Italy
  9. South Africa
  10. China

 'Live in Guardian' is a very popular English term to use, which may not resonate with the other translations. Hence, we have explained the difference between a Tenant and a Live in Guardian, at the very beginning of one's Property Guardian application. We have made a statistical analysis of all our current live-in guardians 

Even checking some of our Live in Guardian testimonials can show you the diverse nationalities who live with us.

The foreign-born population of the United Kingdom includes immigrants from a wide range of countries who are resident in the United Kingdom. Particularly, London has the highest proportion of non-UK born and non-British nationals. London has the largest number of the foreign-born population across England’s government office regions, as well as Scotland. The foreign-born population of the United Kingdom includes immigrants from a wide range of countries who are resident in the United Kingdom.

Although the number of EU migrants have increased more rapidly than non-EU migrants over the past decade, non-EU foreign born still makes up the majority of the foreign-born population. According to the Migration Observatory, in 2017, 39% of the foreign-born population were EU born.

Poland, India and Pakistan are the top three countries of birth of the foreign-born, accounting respectively for 10%, 9 and 6% of the total. Poland is also the top country of citizenship of foreign citizens, accounting for 16.4% of non-UK citizens living in the UK. Poland remains the most common non-UK country of birth, taking over from India in 2015. Polish has been the most common non-British nationality in the UK since 2007.
