To identify the capacities of national statistical systems in the region to classify and georeference migratory movements at the international level.

Specific objectives 

  • To identify the capacities of national statistical systems in the region to classify the size of the migrant population; conditions of vulnerability; infrastructure in place to care for them; and migratory crossing points and routes.
  • To identify statistical information sources (censuses, surveys, administrative records, as well as experimental big data projects or non-conventional sources) and production processes, and the means of access to and exchange of specific data to measure migratory flows and on the socioeconomic characteristics of the migrant population.
  • To highlight the need to include the size of the migrant population in the calibration of expansion factors in social surveys.
