The numbers of migrant children found to be irregularly present in the EU are not distributed proportionately among the Member States. In 2020, of the 30 000 children found to be irregularly present throughout the EU, nearly 11 000 were detected in Germany, 6 500 in Greece and 4 500 in France. However, for a better understanding of the uneven distribution among Member States the absolute figures need to be correlated with the population of each Member State. Figure 3 shows the number of children found to be irregularly present in the various Member States per million inhabitants in 2020, with Greece leading the ranking of Member States with the highest numbers of children irregularly present per million inhabitants, followed by Cyprus, Croatia and Austria.
