The EU is home to 21.6 million third-country nationals, accounting for 4.2% of the total EU population. In 2018 only, an estimated 2.4 million migrants arrived to the EU-28 from non-EU countries. Despite diverse educational backgrounds, working experiences and reasons for coming to the EU, migrants tend to have worse employment outcomes in comparison with native-born citizens.
