Immigration in the census
The 1901 Census Report noted that 'the highest proportion
of Foreigners to the total population was in London, where
it reached 30 per 1,000. It should be noted, however, that
although these Foreigners were scattered throughout the
Metropolis, a very large proportion, equal to 40% of the
whole, were enumerated in the Borough of Stepney' (east
London). Only 13 towns or cities had a foreign population
of more than 1%. These included Manchester (2.2%), Tynemouth
(also 2.2%), Cardiff, South Shields, Leeds, Grimsby, Hull,
Liverpool, Swansea and Bournemouth.
