Handbook for Improving the Production and Use of Migration Data for Development

The handbook is intended to support Member States  in  the  collection,  tabulation,  analysis,  dissemination,  and  use of  migration  data,   and is thus expected to contribute directly to monitoring the implementation of  the  Sustainable  Development  Goals  (SDGs).  By  assisting  countries  in  collecting  accurate, up-to-date, and relevant data on the stocks, flows, and contributions of  migrants and migration to development, it is hoped that the guide will facilitate the  integration of migration into national development planning and strategies.
