This Policy Brief analyses the occurrence of risk-of-poverty and deprivation among the migrant population, and the trends in poverty rates between 2004 and 2007. We also explore the measure of social exclusion between the measures of poverty, deprivation and low work intensity.
The analysis is based on the EU-SILC and defines migrants in terms of
their country of birth distinguishing between those born in another EU
country and those born outside the EU. It has, in addition, a household dimension, in the sensethat migrants are defined as those who live in households where all adult members were born outside the country of residence. The definition is considered to be preferable to the alternative, citizenship-based definition.
