Data from July 2014. Most recent data: Further Eurostat information, Main tables and Database.
Migrants play an important role in the labour markets and economies of the countries they settle in. This article presents European Union statistics on the social inclusion of migrants as part of monitoring their integration and assessing their situation in the labour market. This in turn makes it easier to evaluate the outcomes of integration policies.
The indicators presented in this article are based on the Council conclusions on integration of 2010, the subsequent study ‘Indicators of immigrant integration — a pilot study’ (2011) and the report ‘Using EU indicators of immigrant integration’ (2013).
The present article elaborates on the existing Zaragoza indicators [1] on social inclusion together with some proposed additional ones. The indicators presented here cover the following social inclusion areas:
§  people at risk of poverty and social exclusion;
§  income distribution and monetary poverty;
§  living conditions;
In this article, data which are presented in the tables but are affected by low reliability due to small sample size or high non-response rates, are not used in the analysis.
For the purpose of this article the following terms are being used to describe various migrants groups.
For the population by country of birth:
§  Native-born – means population born in the reporting country
§  Foreign-born – means population born outside the reporting country
§  EU-born – means population born in the EU, except the reporting country
§  Non-EU-born – means population born outside the EU
For the population by citizenship:
§  Nationals – means citizens of the reporting country
§  Foreign citizens – means non-citizens of the reporting country
§  EU citizens – means citizens of the EU countries, except the reporting country
§  Non-EU citizens – means citizens of non-EU countries
