Note(s)

1. Positive decisions include EU-regulated international protection status (refugee status and subsidiary protection status) and may include non-EU harmonised protection which is understood as authorisation to stay for humanitarian reasons under national law.
2. The total number of decisions (positive decisions and rejections) includes all formal decisions such as e.g. implicit and explicit withdrawals, Dublin cases or closed cases for administrative reasons (e.g. the applicant has died).
3. Eurostat defines the (asylum) recognition rate as "the share of positive decisions in the total number of asylum decisions for each stage of the asylum procedure (i.e. first instance and final on appeal)". The total number of decisions consists of the sum of positive and negative decisions. Calculation of the overall recognition rate for all stages of the asylum procedure cannot be made due to lacking information linking the outcomes at first instance and final on appeal for each person concerned. As some of the applicants rejected at the first instance and who lodged an appeal in the same year receive a final negative decision, it would lead to multiplication of some rejected applicants and would cause underestimation of the overall recognition rate. Final decisions on appeal statistics broken down by the year of the first instance rejection would be required to avoid this multiplication.
