The data for analysing migrant workers comes from the Labour Force Survey (LFS). The National Statistics method for estimating the number of migrant workers employed in the UK is routinely based on the number of people at a given time who were born abroad, are of working age (16-64 for men, 16-59 for women), and in employment. This question has been answered on this basis.
The attached table gives the number and proportion of UK and non-UK born people of working age in full-time and part-time employment for the three month period ending June each year, from 1998 to 2007. Comparable estimates are not available for 1998 and 2000.

When interpreting the figures in the table, it is important to bear in mind that the Labour Force Survey (LFS) is not designed to cover everyone who is present in the UK. The survey may undercount the numbers of people who were born overseas. The reasons are set out in the table footnote.
As with any sample survey, estimates from the LFS are subject to a margin of uncertainty.
