Supplementary notes

* Figures displayed refer to rejections based on decisions of merit or formal decisions. According to the source, formal decisions are made without closer context inspection of the asylum claims (for example stopping the process due to withdrawal of the application by the asylum applicant or rejection of the application based on a further asylum procedure).

Figures for years preceding 2008 were retrieved from "Bundesamt in Zahlen 2014", page 46.
