Overall long‐term immigration to Germany remained modest in 2008. Family migration continued to decline. The Central Foreigners Register recorded only about 51 000 new immigrants under this title, the lowest number in more than a decade. The immigration of ethnic Germans (Sp√§taussiedler) from Eastern Europe and Central Asia also continued to decline. Only 4 300 ethnic Germans entered in 2008, compared to more than 35 000 in 2005 and annual averages of between 100 000 and 230 000 throughout the 1990s. This component of immigration flows seems to be gradually disappearing, as is the resettlement of Jews from countries once in the former Soviet Union (about 1 400 in 2008 compared with 15 400 in 2003).
