Migration Review 2001 by the Federal Government Commissioner for Foreigners and Integration on behalf of the Federal Government
In accordance with publication No. 14/2389 of the German Parliament, a migration report is to be presented annually by the Federal Government. The report is to cover all migrant groups and provide a comprehensive overview of the annual development and causes of the migration inflows and outflows. As the first migration report in accordance with the above Act of Parliament, the Migration Review 2001 presents in a concise and easily accessible form the migration flows in Germany with a special emphasis on the years 1999/2000, but also including long-term developments. It focuses not only on immigration to Germany, but also presents figures on emigration from Germany.
For this purpose the migration inflows and outflows are analysed according to quantitative proportions, countries of origin and destination, nationalities and age and gender structure. In addition to this the individual types of migration and migration groups (EU internal migration; migration for the purpose of family reunification; "Spätaussiedler" (ethnic German immigrants); Jewish migrants from the former Soviet Union; inflows of asylum seekers; war, civil war and de facto refugees; and various forms of labour migration) are described in detail as regards their quantitative proportions.
The presentation of the migration flows in Germany is supplemented by a European comparison. The report provides detailed statistics and graphs which are supplemented by comments from a social-sciences, content-related and methodological perspective.
