English term or phrase:in-migration
The EUROSTAT demographic scenario used as a basis for the projections of public expenditure on pensions and health care already assumes significant net in-migration of some 30 million in total until 2050.
I agree with Liz. "In-migration" is the same as "immigration" with extra emphasis on "in" and "out-migration" the same as "emigration" with emphasis on the "out" part. I think it developed because the two correct terms are so similar-sounding.
Here is the meaning of "in-migration": Trends in migration since 1951
Estimates of net migration to and from Scotland since 1951 are shown in Figure 5.1. Historically, Scotland has tended to be a country of net out-migration rather than net in-migration, that is more people leave Scotland to live elsewhere than move to live in Scotland. However, since the 1960s the level of net out-migration, some 30,000-40,000 a year, has reduced significantly and in recent years has been less than half of the peak net migration losses in the 1960s. Indeed, in some years during the late 1980s and early 1990s, and again in the most recent period, Scotland has sometimes experienced net migration gain rather than loss. As can be seen from Figure 5.1, there has been an underlying, long-term, trend of decreasing net emigration from Scotland over the last 50 years.
