Institute of German Economics: "People with a migration background in Germany have worse acquisition and income prospects than others"
Despite the good economy of recent years, which provided for a good labor market situation, a phanomenon has changed little in the last ten years, as the Kolner Institute of the German Economy (IW) detects: "People with a migration background in Germany have worse acquisition and income prospects than others."
From a current IW study, the Rheinische Post quotes some core results in advance. They show that the proportion of employed in the age between 25 and 44 years with a migration background under the comparative values of the same authentals without a migration background. A little better, the descendants from immigrant families, which are born in Germany.
Although IW figures show positive development in the ten-year comparison. Thus, in 2007, the share of all acquisitions from immigrant families in the said age with only 67.9 percent was given, while in 2017 to increase 72.3 percent – and increased in Germany for ten years from 73 Percent to 77 percent. However, it is striking that in a decade at the distance to the persons at the same age without a migration background, nothing has changed significant.
The language skills
For the year 2007, it is possible to ensure that the inventory of persons without a migration background was 83.3 percent. Ten years later he will be stated by the Institute of German Economics at 87.2 percent. This shows an increase in the acquisition of roughly about 4 percentage points in all comparative groups. By contrast, the distance between the purchased share between those with and without a migration background has only decreased slightly. In 2007 he lay at 15.4 percentage points. 2017 at 14.9 percentage points.
Smaller falls off the distance between the acquisitions born in Germany from immigrant families and the acquisition without a migration background. He is about 10 percent. The fact that the difference in the opponents born in Germany did not argue so roughly here for more extensive approaches, there is an obvious explanation in better language skills and a better integration.
The Kolner Institut leads the distance, which is quite constant in the larger tableau over ten years, on the "Relatively low education" and "Luck in German knowledge" return. As always, this will be accompanied by an appeal that language teaching is already intensified in the early age.
Children from migrant families should "Clearly earlier than before" be included in the early childhood education to get voice prere more effective. You have to convince the parents more to give their children significantly to a kindergarten. In addition, the procurement of textures and educators with a migration background should be developed urgently.
Poverty risk and dropouts from the training system
Warned against difficult consequences, if no efforts are made for a better starting point for children from migrant families. Already now lies the number of purchased with one income below the poverty risk shaft in people with a migration background "With 14 percent more than twice as high as such without a migration background (6.1 percent)". The proportion of 9.9 percent was also very high at the acquisitioned with a migrant background born in Germany.
There is still a duster outlook that you also get to Horige by teachers. He concerns the school and training iers among teenagers derived from immigrant families. What fever in sponsors with teachers on impressions and experiences is taken to the statement on the basis of IW study "Uruptive many 18- to 20 years with a migration background in 2016 do not pursue an academic nor a professional education path".
For people without a migration background, the proportion is indicated at 17 percent. The persons with a migration background are reported 28.3 percent. At the born in Germany, he is also high at 25.2 percent.
as "particularly problematic" is mentioned that with 11.1 percent of the born in Germany and 13.4 percent of the up to the age of twelve a significant one "no longer in the education system". A big probability that the "Dropout" still reflect and achieve a professional qualifying degree, you can not see at the Kolner Institute according to RP-Online.
