The information you have requested is not held by the department.

The department has written to the UKSA with regard to the matter of data on no recourse to public funds. Please see the link below: https://www.statisticsauthority.gov.uk/correspondence/response-from-daniel-shaw-to-ed-humpherson-parliamentary-question-response/.

There is no requirement for migrants with valid leave to enter or remain in the UK to maintain contact with the Home Office during their stay, or to provide updates to their address details. This information would be required to undertake any area-based assessment.

We are continuing to investigate whether the administrative data held by the department can provide any meaningful data in future and will provide an update in due course.
