EU Asylum and Migration Data

Visualisations on EU migration flows based on country of origin, host Member State, date, gender and age range.

The countries receiving most immigrants in absoulte terms are also among the top recipients of asylum applications.

The right of residence in a Member State is a key principle within the EU legal framework on the social rights to which foreign citizens have access. Consequently, its management applies to the national legislation on social affairs in each EU country.

Income levels, the prevalence of poverty and inequality, and the provision of social security benefits can directly affect migrants’ choices for a destination country. These factors are intimately connected to the capacity of destination countries to integrate migrants into the labour market and societies.

In all European countries, women are more likely to be unemployed compared to men.

In sum, a wide range of socio-economic indicators and considerations can both, directly and indirectly, affect migrant decision-making as to the desired destinations.
