This research paper addresses the affair of immigration, which has been a recurrent and prominent debated topic in our society. A focus is made on the Netherlands and the effect immigration has had on unemployment and crime rates through the years 1990-2013. The results show a significant negative relationship between immigration and unemployment rate, rejecting the first hypothesis. However, the second hypothesis, which evaluates the influence of immigration rate on crime rateis accepted, when interpreting the results of the level regression.
