UNECE Statistical Division Slide 20October 19, 2015 Data availability Biggest amount of data available for tables 1 and 2 in 2009 mostly data from censuses. Tables 3 to 6 (long-term migration) available in up to 6 out of 12 countries in 2009 and 2010, lack of data for 2011. Data on aquired citizenships fully available for 5 out of 12 countries in 2009 and for 4 out of 12 in 2010. Almost no fully filled tables on short- term migration (exception: Moldova fully provided data on short-term immigration).
UNECE Statistical Division Slide 21October 19, 2015 Problems and challenges Some countries changing the formats of the tables; Some data could not be provided by the countries because it does not support the table format; Sometimes sums of age groups and/or sums of gender groups do not reflect the total numbers indicated; Missing data: not available but relevant? / available but not provided; Stock data vs. Flow data sometimes misleading; Data source not always indicated; Very often, the disaggregated numbers by countries were given but the total numbers (e.g. total number of immigrants) are missing and were calculated upon the receipt of the tables;
