9780470032336: International Migration in Europe: Data, Models and Estimates

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 political consequences and as a result there is growing demand for evidence-based policies. This has long been unfeasible due to inaccuracies in migration data, caused, for example, by different data sources employing different definitions and different collection methods. However, in recent years methods involving the use of models have been developed to derive reliable estimates of migration. International Migration in Europe draws together modern statistical approaches to provide a unified treatment of these methods, allowing a consistent and dependable set of migration flows to be developed.

The book:

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

International Migration in Europe is primarily aimed at academics, undergraduate and graduate students in the fields of demography, statistics, geography, sociology, economics and political science. However, this is also an important book for government statisticians responsible for publishing migration data, as well as analysts working on migration-related topics such as planning and demography at all levels, from local to international.
