International Migration Statistics: Meeting the International Recommendations

This training toolkit, developed by Ann Singleton (University of Bristol/GMDAC/IOM) for the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), focuses on improving data collection in countries of the Arab region and provides the information necessary to develop and improve statistical systems for migration statistics. The approach, although applied to national training needs, is intended to support building regional capacity for the collection of comparable data, using UN standards. It identifies common pitfalls and includes easy-to-use exercises and annexes.
