Unaccompanied children represented 10.5 % of the total number of children applying for international protection (first-time applications) in the EU Member States in 2020, as shown in Figure 7. The percentage was higher than in 2019 (7.3 %) and 2018 (5 %), but far from the figures seen in 2015, when 25.5 % of the children applying for international protection in EU Member States were unaccompanied. Most of the unaccompanied children applying for asylum in 2020 were boys (88 %).
