MIGRANT INTEGRATION STATISTICS [7 March 2014]
Data from February 2014. Most recent data: Further Eurostat information, Main tables and Database.
This article presents recent European Union (EU) statistics on the integration of migrants, in terms of employment, health, education, social inclusion and active citizenship in the hosting country. In order to achieve better comparability among Member States, the 2010 Zaragoza declaration agreed on a set of common indicators which were further developed in the study ‘Indicators of immigrant integration - a pilot study’ of 2011.
Apart from the existing Zaragoza indicators, this article also discusses new indicators, as proposed by the report ‘Using EU indicators of immigrant integration’ of 2013, with the objective of boosting the monitoring and assessment of migrants' situations, along with the relative outcomes of integration policies.
