Improving international migration statistics

John Salt addresses Home Office Conference

Improving international migration statistics

On September 18th, Professor John Salt presented a paper at the UK Home Office's Conference of the Migration Statistics User Forum on 'The Internationalisation of Migration Statistics'.

The conference was attended by a range of people working with and interested in UK international migration statistics. Other contributors included officials from the Home Office, the Office for National Statistics, the Migration Advisory Committee and the House of Commons Library.

John’s paper focused on the sources of comparable international migration data, including those of the OECD, Eurostat and the European Migration Network, and the difficulties for analysis that arose from the lack of harmonisation and differences of definitions between countries.

The conference was highly informative, and brought home some positive strides in recent years to improve UK migration statistics and the availability of internationally comparable data sources.
