The original headline has been misquoted by several sources. It is actually 13.4 per 1000. Written as o/oo . So a 1.34 percent increase. 864,200 on January 1 2018, rising to 875,900 in 2019. Actually I get 1.0135 (so a 1.35% increase) for 8759/8642, but they've probably made some adjustment, or I've pressed a wrong button or something.

I wonder how many of those "new" residents are Brits who never saw a reason to bother with getting a MEU 1 but decided to register as residents now because of Brexit?

That does seem a lot more believable. :)
