If you study this theres a lot of trends you can spot:

in most of Europe a move towards the coast.

in the UK a move away from coastal areas.

In most of europe a concentration of people moving near to big cities - but not right in the centre (probably due to prices)

In the UK a concentration of people moving to big cities - mostly very central London. (probably due to our crap transport system)

I'm not sure what this tells us about house prices - most new immigrants will be renting.

It tells us relying on 'official' stats is madness. I don't trust any of the population stats - for a start, what about the estimated 10 million unknowns in the UK; where does this analysis say they have gone?

It would be better if it was raw numbers rather than percentages but then you would have to adjust for the sq/footage of each area.

It's interesting the the Aberdeen area is so hot, but I think that will have reversed with the current low oil price. The data is from 2011.

Also interesting to see:

- whole countries in the old Eastern Bloc seem to be emptying out (e.g. the Baltic states).

- Ireland is booming - but then I noticed that the data covered the first decade of this century. I wondered what has happened since then? :)

I suspect you already know the answer, but in case others don't:
