image of Indicators of Immigrant Integration 2023

This joint OECD-European Commission publication presents a comprehensive comparison of the integration outcomes of immigrants and their children in OECD, EU and selected other countries. It includes 83 indicators covering three main areas: labour market and skills; living conditions; and civic engagement and social integration. The publication also provides detailed data on the characteristics of immigrant populations and households. Three special chapters are dedicated to focusing on the integration outcomes of specific groups: elderly migrants, youth with foreign-born parents, and third-country nationals in the European Union and European OECD countries.

Composition of immigrant populations and households

This chapter looks at the sizes of immigrant populations (Indicator 2.1) and the socio-demographic background characteristics of immigrants, which drive integration outcomes. They include age (see Chapter 6), gender (Indicator 2.2), differences in fertility (Indicator 2.3) geographical concentration (Indicator 2.4) and household and family structure (Indicators 2.5 and 2.6). In addition to such factors, which also apply to the native‑born, there are certain immigrant-specific determinants like category of entry (Indicator 2.7), duration of stay, and region of origin (Indicator 2.8). A grasp of how they differ from country to country and how immigrants fare relative to the native‑born is a prerequisite for understanding integration outcomes.
