This chapter, which focuses on examining the issues and scope of the impact of migration patterns in developed economies, including the European Union member states, reveals that developed countries have made efforts to monitor the skill aspect of migrants. European economies are burdened with less-skilled migrants, while the United States has been able to attract skilled migrants from around the world, a strategy that helps the United States to retain its competitive superiority over European economies. The chapter presents a static analytical framework with interpretation of cross-country data, which focuses on addressing the skill aspect of the migrating population in these countries.

Keywords:   European Union, member states, European economies
