Europe had a decrease in the number of asylum applications by 10% in 2018.

Family migration, where people migrate with, or to join, family members, increased by 9% and labour migration by 6%.

When it comes to Europe the population growth here has been small during the last decades and mainly driven by immigration.

Moreover immigrants represented 70 percent of the increase in the workforce in Europe over the past 10 years.
