European Commission/Eurostat report: Migrants in Europe – a statistical portrait of the 1st and 2nd generation

In Dec 2011, the European Commission published a new report “Migrants in Europe” which is now available online.

The publication looks at a broad range of characteristics of migrants living in the European Union and EFTA countries. It looks separately at the foreign-born, the foreign citizens, and the second generation. It addresses a variety of aspects of the socio-economic situation of migrants including labour market situation, income distribution, and poverty. The effects of different migration-related factors (i.e. reason of migration, length of residence) are examined. The situation of migrants is compared to that of the non-migrant reference population.
