Sardinia is the first region in the ranking for the employment rate among migrants: it reaches 79%.
This was announced by Eurostat, which published data on integration and the labor market at the regional level in 2020.
Behind the island we find Lazio (65%), Veneto and Tuscany (both 63%). Black jersey instead for Molise (42%), Basilicata (48%) and Calabria (50%).
With 60%, Italy is still above the EU average of 57.2%. Among the EU regions, the highest employment rate for non-EU citizens is 95% in the Czech region of central Moravia. The lowest is 24% in Liege in Belgium.
On the contrary, the four European regions with the lowest employment rates for their citizens are all located in the South (Puglia, Calabria, Sicily and Campania) with rates below 51%. The same applies to citizens of other Member States who work in Italy.
Of the nine regions that recorded employment rates for citizens of other EU member states below 50%, seven are in Italy: Sardinia, Sicily, Puglia, Campania, Basilicata, Molise and Calabria.
But, in general, the employment rate of the population aged between 20 and 64 is lower for non-EU citizens than for citizens of the country in question (73.3%) and for citizens of other EU countries (73%). .
