The overall purpose of this analysis is to highlight correlations between gross unemployment and gross immigration in 25 European Union Member States. Due to the significant impact of the global economic downturn in December 2007 there are two time frames: (1) Pre-downturn - Quarter 1 of 2001 to Quarter 3 of 2007; (2) Downturn period - Quarter 4 of 2007 to Quarter 1 of 2012. Within the following correlation analysis four types have been identified, with each type being explored with regard to the changes in the relationship between time periods (1) and (2). It is clear from the following analysis that there is a clear relationship between gross unemployment and gross immigration in each country.
The MPC is co-financed by the European University Institute and the European Union.
