    1. This crisis is on a bigger scale than anything Europe's seen for a very long time.

    2. There are a lot of children traveling alone.

    3. People are coming from a lot more countries.

    4. Germany is by far the top destination – and its lead is growing.

    5. Refugees aren't coming in through just one route.

    6. Many people who are entering Europe are skilled workers.
