    The population of Ireland (Republic) continued to increase during 2010, to an estimated 4,484,300 in April 2011. However, in the context of the economic crisis, immigration declined to 31,000 in the twelve months to April 2010 and increased slightly to 42,300 in the twelve months to April 2011. Migratory outflows have also increased in recent years, as returning immigrants have added their numbers to emigrating Irish nationals. In the twelve months to April 2011, the inflow of 42,000 was offset by an estimated outflow of over 76,000, resulting in net outward migration of 34,100. In terms of non-Irish nationals relative to nationals, by the second quarter of 2011 the impact of the recession is evident and the total number of non-Irish nationals in the adult population had fallen to 374,000 or 10.7%.
