The number of residents with a migrant background in Germany has skyrocketed to an all-time high to a quarter of the population, along with 42 percent of young children coming from migrant backgrounds in the country.

The revealing statistics come from a report released by the German Federal Statistical Office, stating there are now 20.8 million German residents hailing from migrant backgrounds.

The report's term for 'migrant background' is defined by having residents having at least one parent born abroad, according to Kronen Zeitung.

Out of the 20.8 million stated, just over half, or 52 percent, hold a German passport, with the further 48 percent being citizens of foreign countries.

According to the report, 13.5 million German residents are immigrants.

According to the report, 13.5 million German residents are immigrants.

Moreover, the report found that the primary motivation for migrants moving to the country, seen in 48 percent of cases, was family reunification, otherwise known as chain migration.

A further 19 percent said they moved to Germany for employment reasons.

And 15 percent came to the country as asylum seekers.

But just five percent said they were in Germany for education.

The majority of migrants who came to Germany to live with a family from neighboring European countries equated to 72 percent, while around half of the asylum seekers were from the Middle Eastern region.

The figures show a massive increase in migrant-background residents since 2018 when the statistical office reported there were 19.3 million residents with a migration-background.

Although mass migration is having a significant impact on the country's demographics, hundreds of thousands of Germans have fled the country.

Major German cities such as Frankfurt has seen historical demographical shifts, where Germans were a minority in 2017.

In 2017 alone, nearly a quarter of a million Germans moved abroad.

Major German cities such as Frankfurt has seen historical demographical shifts, where Germans were a minority in 2017.

The following cities join Frankfurt:

  • Offenbach
  • Heilbronn
  • Sindelfingen
  • Pforzheim

All of which are seeing dramatic demographic changes.

Several other major German cities are moving towards natives becoming a minority also, such as Nuremberg where migrant-background residents make up 44.6 percent of the population.

And Stuttgart, where migrants make up 44.1 percent and Munich with 43.2 percent.

Sixty percent of the under 18s in Stuttgart come from migrant-background, illustrating the future demographics of the city.

Germany recently began revoking the asylum status for refugees who return to their home countries for vacations, according to reports.

German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer has vowed to crack down on the practice, arguing that it doesn't make sense for asylum seekers to return to the nations from where they allegedly "fled persecution."
