Cultural and geographical regions

Shown is the percentage of respondents with an immigrant background in Germany to their country of origin. For this evaluation, six cultural and geographical regions are defined by the German Federal Office for Migration and Refugees.



Data: Origin of Respondents

In 2008, the German Federal Office for Migration and Refugees collected this data on behalf of the German Islam Conference for the study ‘Muslimisches Leben in Deutschland’ (MLD 2008) by direct questioning of migrants. This nationwide dataset is the most recent data base for Germany until today (Jan 2015). Additional data from this study was visualized by the German newspaper ‘Zeit online’ in the data journalistic article Dürfen wir vorstellen: Deutschlands Muslime’.

Data: Cultural and Geographical Regions

Cultural and geographical regions can be created by union multipolygons of single countries. The composition used in this interactive map was defined by the German Federal Office for Migration and Refugees. There are also other compositions for example of the UN. The multipolygons of the country borders are provided by Natural Earth.
