This paper assesses two aspect of immigrants (economic and non-economic) in the European labor market using national level source EUROSTAT of the year 2014. The first segment examines how certain variables affects the participation rate of migrants in 35 European countries. Outcome suggests that immigrants who are more actively seeking employment and lack of native language skills are less compared to other immigrants are more incorporated in labor-market integration. The second segment portrays contrast among the first- and second- generation immigrants in terms of employment, income and at-risk-of-poverty rate. I find that employment and at-risk-of-poverty rate among second-generation migrants are higher and lower, respectively, compared to first-generation. But first-generation’s annual income is higher than second-generation.
