Migrants in Europe. A statistical portrait of the first and second generation
This publication looks at a broad range of characteristics of migrants living in the European Union and EFTA countries. It looks separately at foreign-born persons (Chapter 1), foreign citizens (Chapter 2) and the second generation (Chapter 3). 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 for migration, length of residence) are examined. The situation of migrants is compared to that of the non-migrant reference population
An additional aim of this publication is to illustrate the analyses and results that can be produced using readily available data. It offers a good insight into the main harmonised European surveys (European Union Labour Force Survey — EU-LFS — and European Union Statistics on Income and Living Conditions — EU-SILC) as well as Eurostat migration statistics. In addition, this publication may serve to highlight where improvements to existing data would be desirable in order to better cover migrant populations.
