    German kids with foreign parents rises


    19 September 2003

    WIESBADEN - Nearly 22 percent of all babies born in Germany in 2001 had at least one foreign parent, continuing a slow but steady rise in babies of foreign parentage, officials said Friday.

    The Federal Statistics Office in Wiesbaden said that of 734,500 babies born in Germany in 2001 - the last full year on which data are available - 83,000 or 11.3 percent had two foreign parents. A further 78,000 babies or 10.6 percent had one foreign parent.

    The office said that babies born to Turkish parents numbered 30,100, making up the largest group of those with two foreign parents. Next came 5,800 babies from parents of Yugoslav background and 4,200 babies with Italian parents, the office said.

    The office said that compared with 1991, the number of babies with at least one foreign parent in 2001 was up by 6 percent.

    At the same time, there has been a steady decline of babies with two German parents: from 700,609 in 1991 to 573,611 in 2001, the office said.
    And all my youth passed by sad-hearted,
    the joy of Spring was never mine;
    Autumn blows through me dread of parting,
    and my heart dreams and longs to die.

    - Nikolaus Lenau (1802-1850)

    Real misanthropes are not found in solitude, but in the world; since it is experience of life, and not philosophy, which produces real hatred of mankind.

    - Giacomo Leopardi (1798-1837)

    Children are still the #1 poverty risk in this country which most likely will land you in the welfare program unless you have a significantly over-average income. As there is no job security anymore that is the exception rather than the rule by now.

    Foreigners of course can avoid that problem by using German money to buy real estate, businesses etc. in their countries of origin. Heck, with the money I make here I could live like a king in Poland. But unfortunately I cannot commute 1200 kilometers per day - part from the fact that I have absolutely no connection to that country. Foreigners, especially those with dual citizenships don't have that problem.
