The National Statistics Postcode Lookup (NSPL) was updated in August 2020, so some attributes derived from applicant postcode may not match previous releases.

On 18 February, applicant and population figures in the application rate CSV files were updated to be rounded to the nearest 10, in line with the other January deadline CSVs files.

On 18 February the application rate by POLAR4 quintile CSV was updated to include the POLAR4 by gender breakdown for all domiciles.

Gibraltar has been classified as EU (excluding the UK) in this release. This has resulted in a small overreporting of EU (excluding UK) figures, and a small underreporting of Not EU figures.

CSV reports are available below:
