Improvements to the EU migration data landscape
Posted on 21st of July 2021 by Michele Vespe, Carlos Santamaria
Adequate data is key for evidence-informed policymaking. This report describes the initiative coordinated by the KCMD that has brought together relevant EU policy officers (from Commission DGs and services, and EU Agencies) to discuss the current state of migration data for EU policymaking and to coordinate actions intended to address some of the existing data gaps. The report first presents the European migration data landscape and then describes some approaches that are being explored to improve data adequacy.
