According to the Federal Statistics Office in Wiesbaden, around 50 per cent of the children in Germany's major cities have a so-called "immigrant background". This is highlighted in a statement made by the agency on the results of the 2010 microcensus. According to this information, since 2005 the proportion of children of foreign origin has risen by 3% to 30.9%.

While the share of under-18s with foreign roots in communities with fewer than 5000 inhabitants is 12.9%, it rises steeply as the number of inhabitants increases. In cities with over 500,000 inhabitants, it is 46.2%.

In the category of families of "immigrant background" the Federal Statistics Office includes "all parent-child communities" in which at least one of the parents has foreign citizenship or has acquired German citizenship through naturalisation or naturalisation-like measures.
