Print version

In 2010, compared to the previous year, the number of foreign citizens who immigrated to Slovenia due to employment as well as the number of foreign citizens who immigrated to the country for some other reason declined.

The share of Slovenia's population born abroad is on the rise
The number of total population who has immigrated to the country is measured by data on the country of birth. At the beginning of 2010, 12.4% of Slovenia’s population was born abroad. This means that every eighth person in Slovenia who resided in the country on 1st January 2010 immigrated to Slovenia. Since the beginning of 2005 the share of Slovenia’s population born abroad has increased by 1.5 percentage points. On the observation date 69% of Slovenia’s population born abroad had Slovenian citizenship. Most of them were born in Bosnia and Herzegovina (36.3%) and Croatia (28.8%).

The share of foreign-born among the persons in employment is on the rise too
At the beginning of 2010, 15.1% of persons in employment in Slovenia were born abroad, i.e. 0.5 of a percentage point more than in the previous year. Most of them were born in Bosnia and Herzegovina (51.4% of all foreign-born persons in employment) and in Croatia (16,4%).

Most of the persons in employment in Slovenia upper secondary educated
On the observation date (1st January 2010) most of the persons in employment in Slovenia who were born in Slovenia had upper secondary education (60.3%). Also among the foreign-born persons in employment in Slovenia, those with upper secondary education dominated, but the share was lower (52.1%). Among those born in Slovenia, people with upper secondary education were followed by tertiary educated (almost 28%), while among those born abroad they were followed by people with primary education or less (36.3%).
Among the persons in employment in Slovenia who were born in Bosnia and Herzegovina, i.e. in the country from which the greatest number of people immigrated to Slovenia, 58.4% had upper secondary education or more.

The education of domestic and foreign-born persons in employment in Slovenia has been improving in recent years.

Most foreign-born men in employment worked in construction and most foreign-born women in employment in manufacturing
At the beginning of 2010 most persons in employment who were born abroad were employed in construction (28%) and manufacturing (21.5%). Compared to the previous year, in the first activity the share of persons in employment born abroad increased by almost one percentage point, and in the second activity decreased by 2.5 percentage points.
There were significant gender differences; men were mostly employed in construction (almost 41% of all foreign-born men in employment) and in manufacturing (just over 21%). As regards foreign-born women in employment, most of them were employed in manufacturing (22.4%) and in health and social care (13.4%).

On the other hand, most persons in employment who were born in Slovenia were employed in manufacturing (23.5%, which is less than a year ago), followed by those working in wholesale and retail trade, repair of motor vehicles (almost 15%).

Persons in employment born abroad more concentrated in certain occupations than persons in employment born in Slovenia
At the beginning of 2010, most persons in employment born abroad were employed in elementary occupations (25.1%) and as craft and related trades workers (24.8%). Compared to the previous year, the share of persons in employment in the first group of occupations increased by half a percentage point and in the second fell by 0.3 of a percentage point. Persons in employment born in Slovenia were more evenly distributed among occupations. Most of them were engaged in occupations of technicians and associate professionals (20.7%), followed by professionals (16%). A year before, most of them worked as technicians and associate professionals (the same share as at the beginning of 2010), followed by professionals (14.6%).

The same share of registered unemployed persons among the labour force born in Slovenia and the labour force who immigrated to Slovenia
Since the beginning of 2009 the number of registered unemployed people in Slovenia has increased by almost 46% and at the beginning of 2010 amounted to almost 95,000 people. As of 1st January 2010, 10.5% of the labour force in Slovenia was unemployed. The share of registered unemployed persons in this period increased among immigrants to Slovenia and also among those born in Slovenia; in the first group by nearly 3 percentage points and in the second one by 3.3 percentage points.

As in the previous years, most foreigners immigrated to Slovenia for employment
In 2010, 15,416 persons immigrated to Slovenia, which is 49,1% less than in the previous year; 12,705 of them were foreigners and 2,711 were citizens of Slovenia. As in the previous years, among the foreigners who immigrated to Slovenia in 2010 most numerous were those who immigrated to the country for employment (a little more than 65%). The second largest group consisted of those who immigrated to Slovenia to join the family (23.4%). For just over 5.9% of foreigners who immigrated to Slovenia in 2010 the purpose of immigration was unknown.

The economic crisis has reduced immigration to Slovenia due to economic as well as other reasons
Compared to 2009, in 2010 the number of foreign citizens who immigrated to Slovenia due to employment as well as the number of foreign citizens who immigrated to the country for some other reason declined.

Significant drop of the number of foreigners who immigrated in 2010 to Slovenia and in the same year in Slovenia got employment
Out of 12,705 foreigners who in 2010 immigrated to Slovenia, 6,663 got employed in the same year. As in previous years, most of those foreigners who immigrated to Slovenia in 2010 found employment in construction (43.8%) and manufacturing (just over 13%). As regards occupations, most of them (almost one third) were craft and related trades workers, followed by elementary occupations (30%). More than half of foreigners (53.3%) who immigrated to Slovenia in 2010 and in the country in the same year got employment had at least upper secondary education.
