East European Migration Revealed
More than 16,000 migrants from eastern Europe have registered to work in Wales in recent years according to new Welsh Assembly Government statistics.
Two-thirds of these workers are Polish with migrants also coming from seven other ex-Eastern Bloc countries which joined the European Union in 2004.
Five areas - Carmarthenshire, Wrexham, Cardiff, Newport and Flintshire - have higher levels than the rest of Wales.
Figures do not include workers who have not registered or the self-employed.
The report, by the assembly government's Statistical Directorate, concentrates on the number of workers migrating to Wales from the time eight eastern European countries - known as the A8 - joined the EU in May 2004 to March 2007.
