Overview of statistical practice

 

Statistical information on asylum applicants and main countries of origin, as well as overall numbers and outcome of first instance decisions, was made available on a monthly basis by the former Immigration and Asylum Office (former IAO), although this practice stopped in April 2018.[1] The Hungarian Helsinki Committee (HHC) also published brief statistical overviews on a monthly basis, although their regularity has also become more limited.[2]
