At present there is no unified treatment, drawing together models to allow a consistent and reliable set of migration flows, across countries. This text seeks to do exactly that, potentially improving policies, planning and understanding about migration processes worldwide, via the presentation of migration estimation and modeling techniques. These modeling techniques are explored from both frequentist and Bayesian perspectives. The vital concepts such as missing data and collection methods (and their possible harmonization) are discussed in depth, and there are whole chapters dedicated to both modeling asylum flows and forecasts about the future of international migration.

From the Back Cover:

International migration has huge economic, social and politicalconsequences and as a result there is growing demand forevidence-based policies. This has long been unfeasible due toinaccuracies in migration data, caused, for example, by differentdata sources employing different definitions and differentcollection methods. However, in recent years methods involving theuse of models have been developed to derive reliable estimates ofmigration. International Migration in Europe draws together modernstatistical approaches to provide a unified treatment of thesemethods, allowing a consistent and dependable set of migrationflows to be developed.

The book:

  • Uses European-based real data to demonstrate migrationestimation and modelling tools, with worldwide applications.
  • Explores the modelling techniques from both the frequentist andBayesian perspectives.
  • Discusses vital concepts in detail, such as missing data andcollection methods.
  • Includes chapters dedicated to the key areas of modellingasylum flows and migration forecasting.
  • Is authored by the leading experts working in migration dataand models.
  • Is supported by a supplementary website featuring furtherreading material.

International Migration in Europe is primarily aimed atacademics, undergraduate and graduate students in the fields ofdemography, statistics, geography, sociology, economics andpolitical science. However, this is also an important book forgovernment statisticians responsible for publishing migration data,as well as analysts working on migration-related topics such asplanning and demography at all levels, from local tointernational.
