Handbook for Improving the Production and Use of Migration Data for Development
The Global Migration Group (GMG) produced this publication to provide guidance to producers and users of international migration data. It includes detailed accounts of changes in the field of migration data, thorough explanations of key definitions and concepts, and strategies to bolster migration statistics (e.g., administrative data and 'big data'). Readers will find the notes on 'good practice' to be of particular practical value.
Stocktaking of Global Forced Displacement Data
Sarzin reviews the availability, credibility, and methodologies behind common sources of displacement data, in doing so helping researchers and policymakers review their approaches to understanding an often difficult situation to encompass. Key definitions and ongoing programmes are also discussed to offer information for both those new to the topic and those to whom forced displacement is a familiar terrain.
