This way, it's easier to compare the asylum influx between small, medium, and large countries.

Table 1 is arranged by the number of asylum applications in decreasing order. Germany registered the highest number of applications, followed by Sweden and Italy. The Netherlands ranked 8th within the EU. It is clear from table 1 that the ranking of countries when compared by the three indicators of country size is not the same as the ranking ordered by the number of asylum applications. There are substantial differences for most European countries between their share of the EU-28 total of asylum applications, country area, inhabitants and GDP. In the next subsection, the different indicators of country size will be related to the number of asylum applications in more detail. 13
