Two issues which dominated the UK's Brexit referendum debate were immigration and the economy.
But sharp falls in migration post Brexit could shrink GDP per capita by more than 3 percent.
That's according to a report by NIESR fellow Jonathan Portes and NIESR research assistant Giuseppe Forte.
The report, titled "The Economic Impact of Brexit-induced Reductions in Migration," found that a fall in total immigration of 91,000, would mean that GDP per capita would be 3.4% lower by 2030 than it would otherwise have been.
To find out more about the report, Simon spoke to Jonathan Portes Senior Fellow at NIESR and co-author of the report.
