Crude rate of naturalisation

Definitions

This indicator shows the ratio between the number of naturalisations recorded in a civil year and the number of residence and settlement permit holders at the beginning of the same civil year. It is calculated by dividing the number of persons who obtain naturalisation in year X by the number of residence and settlement permit holders on 1.1. of year X. However, this indicator provides no information on the number of rejected naturalisation applications.
