Data resources

We publish detailed reference data tables and files when the application cycle is complete.

Annual data files

These data files provide application and acceptance figures for combinations of selected descriptive variables.

  • There are several files, each looking at a different set of characteristics, and most cover cycles back to 2004. 
  • All the data files, together with a guide as to what they contain, can be downloaded from the related documents.

Annual reference tables

We also provide reference tabulations of applicants, applications or acceptances by selected characteristics.
