News Release
In 2013, 2.36 million first residence permits were issued in the EU28 to non-EU citizens, up by 12.5% compared with 2012 but down by 7.0% compared with 2008. The decrease recorded from 2008 is mainly due to the fall in the number of first permits issued for employment reasons (from 0.8 million in 2008 to 0.5 mn in 2013). In 2013, 28.5% of first residence permits were issued for family reasons, 19.7% for education, 22.7% for employment reasons and 29.1% for other reasons.

The European system of accounts 2010 (ESA 2010) provides a revised set of concepts, definitions, classifications and accounting rules that enable the EU Member States to produce consistent, reliable and comparable statistical descriptions of their economies. For most Member States the implementation of the ESA 2010 guidelines is accompanied by the incorporation of statistical improvements in their data. While these changes give rise to shifts in the GDP levels of most Member States, growth rates have been almost unaffected.
