The number of Britons who migrated to five different countries between 2004 and 2007 is displayed in a bar chart. The graph makes it clear that, during the time period, moving to Australia was the most popular destination.

In 2004, there were just over 40,000 emigrants to Australia, around 6,000 more than in Spain and twice as many as in the other three nations. With the exception of a spike to about 52,000 in 2006, it stayed at this level the entire time.

Spain was the second most popular country for Britons to relocate to, but with time, its popularity waned and it ranked below 30,000 in 2007. That being said, the percentage remained more than that of the other three nations. Every year, about 20,000 people migrate to New Zealand, while the number of immigrants from the USA varied over the course of the time from 20 to 25,000.

Overall, even if the number of tourists visiting France reached almost 35,000 in 2005, at the end of the year, just under 20,000 individuals were leaving the nation.
