The Office for National Statistics collects the official records of births and deaths and estimates the annual numbers of migration to calculate the components of population change. The migration data is based on estimates and so care should be taken, particularly when viewing international migration counts.

In Surrey, there were 12,044 births and 11,390 deaths between 2019 and 2020. The number of births in Surrey have steadily declined over time. The numbers of births have declined by 13 per cent between 2012-13 to 2019-20, with 1,785 fewer children being born between 2019 and 2020 compared to 2012 to 2013.

Internal migration represents the number of persons moving into or out of Surrey from the UK. Surrey has a similar number of new residents from the rest of the UK (inflow, 60,458 in 2019-20) to the number of residents who leave Surrey for the rest of the UK (outflow, 59,058 in 2019-20). From 2014-15 to 2018-19, the internal net migration was negative; more Surrey residents left the county for the rest of the UK than the number of new residents joining Surrey from the rest of the UK.

The international migration figures are estimates rather than actual counts. Nonetheless, it appears that the estimated numbers of international migrants into Surrey have been relatively stable apart from a brief decline in 2016/17. There has been an estimated increase in the number of Surrey residents migrating internationally (outflow) in 2019/20.
