Technical Seminar "Measurement of labor migration using administrative data, through population censuses and sample household surveys"

On October 20, 2021, the Russian Federation Federal State Statistics Service together with UNFPA and the International Center for Statistical Expertise "Centrostat" will conduct an online training seminar on migration statistics for experts from the Commonwealth of Independent States.

In recent decades, labor migration has accounted for the majority of migration in the CIS countries. Despite its significant scale and great importance for the economic and social spheres of the receiving and sending countries, the situation around the statistics of labor migration remains unfavorable.

The objective of the seminar is to consider, with specific examples, the practice of conducting labor migration statistics on the basis of administrative sources and household surveys, both general topics and specialized ones. In addition, within the framework of the seminar, participants will be given the opportunity to break into groups and discuss which labor migration data is required to make managerial decisions in receiving and sending countries, and to what extent national needs for such data can be met in modern conditions.

Employees of national statistical services and departments from CIS countries collecting data on labor migration or foreign workers (migration services, tax services, ministries of labor and employment, etc.) are invited to participate in the seminar. At the end of the event, participants will receive personalized online certificates.

The event is organized in the format of a video conference. The number of participants is limited. Working language: Russian.

When: October 20, 2021, Time: 11.00-13.00 (Moscow time)
