NEW: New MIPEX assessments are available with comparable data as of 1 November 2013 for Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, bringing the total number of countries in the MIPEX to 40.
The MIPEX includes 40 countries in order to provide a view of integration policies across a broad range of differing environments.
For a long time North America was cited as the continent of immigration, while Europe was largely a continent of emigration. Some European countries still are (including many in Central Europe and the Baltics). Now a great many European countries are established countries of immigration (Nordic countries, Western Europe, Southern Europe), where every year many people come into the country, often more than leave.
For some countries, immigration is a very recent phenomenon (including Southern Europe, Czech Republic, Finland and Ireland), while many attract migrant workers.
