This page provides information on the commitments we made in the Home Office business plan. The indicators on this page are just a part of the data we gather and publish.
The transparency section of the Home Office business plan lists the UK Border Agency's key input and impact indicators, and our business plan covers them in more detail. Input indicators show the full costs of the agency's activities. Impact indicators measure the extent to which our policies and activities are having the effect we intend.
Although Border Force is now a directorate of the Home Office, information on passenger clearance standards, costs per passenger at the border and annual level of tax revenue protected for 2011-12 continues to be made available on the UK Border Agency website.
- Cost per passenger processed at the border
- Cost per decision for all permanent and temporary migration applications.
- Net migration to the UK (information published on the Office for National Statistics website)
- Annual level of tax revenue that is protected through detecting goods where excise duty has not been declared
- Clearance of passengers at the border within published standards
- Percentage of migration applications decided within published standards
- Percentage of asylum applications concluded in one year.
The Home Office quarterly immigration statistics release provides further detailed information on our work and people subject to immigration control. The latest release, Immigration Statistics October - December 2012 covers the period up to the end of December 2012, together with earlier data.
The Home Office business plan contains technical definitions for the input and impact indicators. You can download the business plan from the right side of this page.

Why we publish this information
We publish performance information as part of the government's commitment to transparency.
The government aims to:

- realise significant economic benefits by enabling businesses and non-profit organisations to build innovative applications and websites using public data.
