The report contains statistics on migration, on the composition of immigrants and their Norwegian-born children and on integration indicators in various social areas, mainly based on data from Statistics Norway and the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration. The report presents an overview of immigration and integration policy principles and measures. It covers the major types of migration, integration in general, training, education, labour market issues, housing, political participation, child welfare, discrimination, citizenship, public debate and opinion, as well as policies concerning migration and development.
