dc.description.abstractThe purpose in this paper is to survey the course of immigration into Denmark and research andstudies related to the problems encountered in this area. The first part of the paper describes theactual flows of migrants in the most recent decades. The directly job-related part of migrationcan not be identified precisely. A survey of research results indicate net migration flows towardsother OECD countries is sensitive to cyclical indicators and thus mainly labour market related.The paper goes on to survey immigration policy and available evidence regarding the labourmarket integration of both 1. and 2. generation immigrants. Immigrants and refugees arerecorded on average with much higher unemployment and much lower labour marketparticipation than Danish citizens. The status in the late 1990s points to the pressing need forpolicy initiatives to improve this situation. Finally, the paper summarizes available resultsregarding the impact on public finances from immigration.en_US
