  8. Public attitudes towards migration and migrants:complexities, nuances, scope for change Significant variations, e.g. • Regional and local differences: not correlated to migrant presence – urban areas considerably less hostile – but not just urban areas • People more worried about national than local effect of migration Chart: Ipsos SPARDA First Wave report 2011
