An unaccompanied minor is a person less than 18 years old who arrives on the territory of an EU Member State not accompanied by an adult responsible for the minor, or a minor who is left unaccompanied after having entered the territory of a Member State. 9.6 % of all the minor applicants are unaccompanied; and a majority of these are male (88.5 %). Almost 50 % of the unaccompanied minors requested asylum in three Member States (Greece, Germany and Austria).
