Associated Press, March 2, 2023

Some 18.9 million people, or 23% of Germany’s population, either immigrated to the country since 1950 or are the children of immigrants, Germany’s Federal Statistics Office said Thursday.


When it comes to the 17.3% who are first-generation immigrants, Germany ranks above the European Union average of 10.6% {snip}

In addition, another 3.7 million, or 4.5% of the population, have one parent who immigrated and one ethnic German parent.

The newly presented figures are from 2021 and therefore do not include the more than 1 million Ukrainians who came to Germany {snip}
