Immigration is often mentioned as a potential solution to the challenges that society will face in the future as a result of an increasing proportion of elderly people in the population and a diminishing proportion of people of working age.  But can we say on the basis of current experience with immigration and integration that there is a long-term prospect of immigration creating a surplus for Danish public finances? And what differences are there in this context with regard to immigration from Western and non-Western countries? The study contains analyses that give prognoses for the period up until 2050.
