Europe — Flow Monitoring in Italy (June — November 2016)

The majority of respondents (57%) is from West African countries, followed by 19% from the Horn of Africa, 12% from North African countries and the remaining 10% from (Western and Central) Asian countries. Comparing well to the total arrivals to Italy by sea2, men represent the majority of the sample (87%) while women are 13%. Children between 14 and 17 years of age (boys and girls) are 24% of all migrants interviewed. Half of the sample (51%) has achieved secondary education, while 32% has primary education and 5% tertiary education. Further, it was found that adult males are more often traveling alone than adult women (77% vs 56%) and less likely to travel with a family member (9% vs 32%).
