Stable integration climate in Germany. 2018 Integration Barometer
SVR Report | September 2018
The SVRʼs Integration Barometer is a representative survey of people with and without a migration background. It captures the “integration climate”, that is the publicʼs opinion of the integration of first- and second-generation migrants in Germany. The Integration Climate Index (ICI), a measure of social coexistence in Germany as an immigration country, forms the core of the Integration Barometer. It covers the areas of work, education, and social and neighbourly relations. Those surveyed were also asked about their attitudes to refugees, what they believe it takes to be successful in Germany and their attitude to the wearing of Islamic headscarves in schools and government agencies.
