The Home Office publishes data on the number of people applying for asylum in the UK, broken down by nationality, gender and age, in each year, in table as_03 (asylum, volume 2) of the quarterly Immigration Statistics release. The latest available data are for 2016. Data for 2017 will be published on 23rd August 2018.

UK’s immigration control operates at the national level and this is reflected in the statistics published by the Home Office. Therefore, data for Northern Ireland are not separately available.
