Almost two thirds of the indicators now show results by migration status. For a minority of them, comparison beyond by place of birth combined with nationality is not possible (19%). The remaining indicators show results by nationality (6%). 10% of indicators have not yet been developed.

The aim of monitoring integration is to measure the integration of various groups of the population with a migration background at a given moment or over a certain period of time and to compare it with the native population.

Under no circumstances can migration status be considered as the only explanatory factor for the differences found between various population groups. Other variables such as age, nationality, education level, occupational status etc. may also explain these differences. Tables with results broken down by various sociodemographic characteristics are available on each page of the integration indicators.
