Migration, integration and xenophobia are increasingly important topics in today’s political discussion and in scientific research spanning the breadth of social and behavioral sciences. The rapidly changing nature of immigration in many countries necessitates timely data for researchers and decision-makers alike. This special data collection by the GESIS Data Archive offers high-quality data on migration decisions, integration in host societies and attitudes toward immigrants and ethnic minorities. A growing number of national and comparative studies are available that feature ethnic oversampling, large sample sizes and longitudinal data collection. These data facilitate cutting-edge research on many migration-related issues. The overview presented on this page compiles the data sets currently available through the GESIS Data Archive into three categories of migration data: 

  • Studies on Migration and Migration Decisions

  • Studies on Immigrant Integration

  • Studies on Migration-related Attitudes 

All data are available through the GESIS Data Catalogue. Please refer to the corresponding links in the drop-down tables below.

A Selection of Migration-Related Studies

Children of Immigrants Longitudinal Survey in Four European Countries (CILS4EU) (ZA5656)

DBK-Link

The study is a panel survey of adolescents designed to study the complex causal mechanism of structural, social, and cultural integration of adolescents with migration background. The data of three waves are currently available.

The data set of the first wave includes surveys of students, parents, and teachers. It enables studying processes of intergenerational transmission and integration.

Muslim Life in Germany (ZA5244)

DBK-Link

The aim of this study is to determine the number of Muslims in Germany and their religious composition as precisely as possible. And also contribute to gaining insights into the everyday religious life, beliefs, social and structural integration of Muslims with a migration background.

2000 Families: Migration Histories of Turks in Europe (ZA5957)

DBK-Link

The 2000 Families: Migration Histories of Turks in Europe project explores migration processes, the multi-generational transmission of social, cultural, religious and economic resources, values and behavior. The research is targeted Turkish migrant and non-migrant families, their members in European countries and those who did not migrate to European countries or returned to Turkey, and involves survey interviews with approximately 6000 family members across three generations.

The Integration of the European Second Generation in Frankfurt and Berlin (TIES Germany) (ZA5616)

DBK-Link

TIES Germany is part of an international survey, conducted in 8 countries (Belgium, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, Netherlands, France, Spain and Austria). It is about children of immigrants from Turkey, Yugoslavia and Morocco.

Causes and Consequences of Socio-Cultural Integration Processes among New Immigrants in Europe (SCIP) (ZA5956)

DBK-Link

The SCIP project (“Causes and Consequences of Socio-Cultural Integration Processes among New Immigrants in Europe”) is the first comparative survey among new arrivals in four Europe countries: Germany, Great Britain, Ireland and the Netherlands. Its substantive focus is on socio-cultural integration trajectories. By focusing on recent arrivals, the SCIP project studies a particularly dynamic phase of the entire integration process, thus laying the ground for the creation of a “European New Immigrant Panel” that matches the existing new immigrant surveys in classical immigration countries such as the USA.

People with Migration Background in Germany 2014 (ZA6604)

DBK-Link

In 2008, the Press and Information Office of the Federal Government commissioned a broad-based study on migrants to provide comprehensive information on the life of this target group in Germany. In the meantime, numerous policy measures (including several integration summits and a National Action Plan on Integration) aimed to improve the overall conditions for the integration of migrants into German society. Against this backdrop, a central objective of the present survey was to identify changes in the attitudes of different migrant groups over the past six years and to investigate the extent to which the integration efforts of Germany have been successful from the point of view of migrants.
