The Effects of Immigration on Welfare Across the EU: Do Subjective Evaluations Align with Estimations?

This working paper from examines the determinants of citizens’ perceptions of the impact of immigration on public finances. The authors show that EU citizens’ evaluations of the impacts of immigration on welfare are partly responsive to estimates of fiscal exposure from immigration in their country. However, evaluations depend less on the extent of immigrants’ contributions towards the costs of what they receive, and more on the identity of the recipient. This suggests that identity considerations appear to underlie people’s perceptions of impacts more than economic considerations.
