Number of foreigners

The number of immigrants is not only the result of a country's migration incidence (immigration and emigration) but is also influenced by other factors. The entire population as well the immigrant community is considered here more closely in terms of chronology and by looking at various aspects such as age or gender. At the moment these statistics are only available in German. You can download them from the German version of this site.

You can obtain further statistical data about the population and the immigrant population from the Federal Office for Statistics.

Wichtige Mitteilung


There have been several occasions very recently in which people have pretended to be employees of the Federal Office and asked for an interview at which they questioned asylum applicants intensively. This took place in some cases on the pretext that a second hearing was allegedly needed. Important: The Federal Office does not conduct home visits! These individuals do not work for the Federal Office. The Federal Office has therefore filed criminal charges. If something similar happens to you, or if you observe anything of this nature as a carer, please report this to your local police station.Interviewers from reputable survey institutes who are currently conducting interviews as part of research projects in which data are collected on a voluntary basis clearly state who they are working for. They also give the name of the survey institute and prove this by showing the appropriate documentation. This means that you can make enquiries should you have any doubts.
