||<p>The number of enforced returns from the UK by year and country of nationality is
published in table rt_02 (returns data tables, volume 1) in ‘Immigration Statistics,
year ending December 2018’, available from the GOV.uk website at: <br><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/781113/returns1-dec-2018-tables.ods"
term 'deportations' refers to a legally-defined subset of returns which are enforced
either following a criminal conviction or when it is judged that a person’s removal
from the UK is conducive to the public good. Information on those deported is not
separately available and therefore the published statistics refer to all enforced
returns.</p><p>Information for January to March 2019 will be published on 24th May
