Data Set

Migration Indicators: Inflows of foreign population by nationality

Description

OECD countries seldom have tools specifically designed to measure the inflows and outflows of the foreign population, and national estimates are generally based either on population registers or residence permit data. Population registers can usually produce inflow and outflow data for both nationals and foreigners. To register, foreigners may have to indicate possession of an appropriate residence and/or work permit valid for at least as long as the minimum registration period. Statistics on permits are generally based on the number of permits issued during a given period and depend on the types of permits used.
