This quantitative analysis was built upon by conducting a series of semi-structured qualitative interviews with A8 migrants about their roles in civil society. These were individuals based in the case study areas. This research examined the nature of involvement with various groups, and how these may lead to ties with particular localities and communities. The study focused on three localities across Wales; one urban, one rural and one semi-rural. A mixed methods approach was employed. Initial statistical analysis used data from the UK Census, going back to the 1950s, to examine the impact of in-migration on the demographic profiles of the case study areas. The Citizenship Survey was then used to attempt to discern the different rates of participation of A8 migrants, other migrant groups and UK born residents in local communities.
