The Leeds Migration Map – displays the spread and diversity of new and existing communities in Leeds at a local level. It exists to provide understanding of population changes and trends alongside wider contextual information to support the meeting of need for the diverse population of Leeds. The map is fully interactive and we hope makes data about migration in Leeds more accessible.
This mapping tool has been available on the Leeds Observatory for some time and has already been used to:
- build local knowledge
- provide evidence for funding
- build partnerships
- influence strategy and change
Recently the Leeds Observatory has been developed, and the Leeds Migration Map updated to include 2018/19 data and the following highlights:
Storymap – This is a fantastic resource. Migration is a global story, this presentation takes the user on a global journey on inward migration patterns in Leeds since 2002/03. It provides insight into global factors which affect population changes in Leeds, where migrants are coming from and where they settle in Leeds

Webmap – An interactive map that allows users to explore data about recent and settled migrant communities, alongside other contextual layers and service provision in Leeds. The map will be updated annually.
