Integration in Rhineland-Palatinate. Special analysis of SVR’s 2020 Integration Barometer (September 2021 – February 2022)
The Integration Barometer is a representative public survey of people with and without a migration background in Germany. It measures the integration climate in Germany as an immigration country and captures the population’s perceptions and expectations with regard to integration and migration as well as integration and migration policy. The 2020 Integration Barometer was the first to be sponsored jointly by the Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community and the 16 federal states (Laender). The Integration Barometer has been expanded into a Federal Government/Federal State Barometer, which enables analyses to be made at the federal state level too.
The Ministry for Family, Women, Culture and Integration (MFFKI) of the State of Rhineland-Palatinate has commissioned SVR’s scientific staff with a special analysis of SVR’s 2020 Integration Barometer. The data for Rhineland-Palatinate were analysed and presented in detail. The analysis focused on the social, cultural and identificational dimensions of integration, trust in institutions and the media and on the Integration Climate Index. These aspects were analysed using descriptive and multivariate statistical techniques. The special analysis was handed over to the State of Rhineland-Palatinate end of February 2022.
