With migration data in the global spotlight thanks to processes such as the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration and others, the report that is discussed in the video provides a comprehensive picture of how “migration data systems” work in practice at the national level.  
Through six case study countries, the report explores how far countries are making progress in improving migration data and the practical challenges and opportunities facing National Statistical Offices (NSOs) and other stakeholders. This first-of-its-kind international comparative study on migration data is based on interviews with stakeholders in Canada, Djibouti, Ireland, Jamaica, Moldova and Nigeria, including representatives from NSOs, line ministries and academia.
