    Could the article have a link to the Numbers , please ?

    Could we also have some clarification on whether the Numbers are about migrants or refugees .

    The last time checked , nearly all migrants to Switzerland were Germans, not refugees . This could have changed , and I would love to see a link to the numbers .

      Hey Daniel, thanks for noticing that the original source is not there. It was, but after so many edits they were deleted. I will add it ASAP.

      The relocation programme is specifically for refugees. If we want to follow official terminology on this, before someone applies, they are an “asylum-seeker.” If they are accepted, and therefore included in these numbers, they officially become refugees, which, of course, is a sub-category of migrant, with its own legal basis.

    Hi Eliza,

    I’m not sure why you didn’t use a map. Did you need LatLong data?

      That was my first instinct, but after making the visualisation I felt like some of the data was lost. Definitely something I want to do in the future, perhaps combining numbers on relocation, resettlement and asylum applications.

        OK, let me know if I can help.

    The population data for Sweden is 10X too small on that first graphic.

      Thanks Sue, I fixed it!

    The data visualisation page 1 of 5, ‘EU Member-states population’, appears to incorrectly show Norway and Switzerland as EU member states, but omits Italy, Greece and the UK which are.

      Hey John, thanks for catching this. Whilst Norway and Switzerland are not EU members, they participate in the relocation scheme whereas Greece and the UK don’t. I’ll fix the title in the visualisation to avoid ambiguity.

        Hi Eliza, the headline of the article leads one to expect all EU states to be compared, so it is surely relevant that those two EU states have explicitly chosen not to contribute?

        1. [ This comment is from a user you have muted ] (show)

          Greece and Italy are exempt because they are a country of entry; there is no point relocating refugees from Greece to Greece.
          The UK does have a relocation scheme, but it is under a different legal regime to the one this article refers to, for Brexit reasons. I can refer you to the relative legislation if you would like to see for yourself.

    Mhhhh, it seems my edit broke some of the markup, sorry!

      Having a look at that now.
