The total number of Brits living abroad has reached 5.5 million, according to figures from the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR).
Almost one in ten Britons now lives abroad and a British national emigrates every three minutes. IPPR predicts that another one million Brits will move abroad over the next five years.
The report shows that Britain has more people living abroad than almost any other country.
The top 10 countries where Brits live are Australia (1.3 million), Spain (760,000), USA (680,000), Canada (600,000), Ireland (290,000), New Zealand (215,000), South Africa (212,000), France (200,000), Germany (115,000) and Cyprus (59,000).
Danny Sriskandarajah, associate director of ippr, said: “A healthy economy at home, especially when house prices are buoyant and the pound is strong, makes it easier to up sticks and move abroad."
