Just how many refugees are requesting asylum in Europe?
Eurostat and FAZ provided data, flipvandyke.nl made a list including the number of requests per 100.000 inhabitants and I’ve translated that to English and added percentages.
As you can see, not a single country has had requests in 2015 in numbers that exceed 1.5% of their existing population and countries like the UK are making a fuss over 0.055%. That’s right, the UK could accept every single refugee that requested asylum in 2015 and experience no more than a 0.055% population increase. (and not even any real increase because Britons are leaving the country than new people are moving in)
