Labour Migration Survey – 2008 Definition of labour migrant External labour migrants include Ukraine’s citizens of working age that were engaged in remunerated labour activity in foreign countries on a permanent, seasonal or temporary basis (including those who did not have a legitimate status). They did not include frontier workers.
Labour Migration Survey – 2008 The purpose of the survey is to assess the scale, popularity, geographic direction of external labour migrations, socio-demographic category of migrants, their occupation, frequency and length of their trips etc. The period of survey encompassed the last three and a half years: starting 1 January 2005 till 1 June 2008. The subject of survey were persons of working age (women aged 15−54 and men aged 15−59) that permanently reside within the household.

Labour Migration Survey – 2012 The purpose of the survey is to assess the scale, scope and geographic coverage of Ukrainian citizens’ migration for employment purposes, the socio-demographic composition of migrant workers, including their educational attainment, areas of training before departure abroad, their economic activities, working conditions, frequency and duration of their migration cycles, among others. The period of survey encompassed the last two and a half years: starting 1 January 2010 till 17 June 2012. The subject of survey were persons aged 15–70 permanently residing in their households.
Labour Migration Survey – 2012 Definition of labour migrant Migrant workers are persons, who during the reference period (1 January 2010–17 June 2012) worked abroad or searched for a job abroad. They are also persons who within the reference period had a job abroad but have already returned to Ukraine and also those who were abroad during the survey due to the job performance or search abroad.
Labour Migration Survey – 2012 Categories of migrants Returned migrant workers to Ukraine are household members aged 15–70 who returned to Ukraine within the specified reference period after having worked abroad or having searched a job abroad. Short-term migrant workers are defined as household members aged 15–70 who were absent from their household for less than a year at least once during the specified observation period (with likely return during the next 12 months) due to working or searching a job abroad (e.g. persons with seasonal or temporary jobs, etc.). Based on the survey results, this category does not include frontier commuting migrants and persons working and receiving wages in Ukraine and making trips abroad for business reasons (e.g. workers of international transport companies, persons on missions, and so forth). Emigrant workers are household members aged 15–70 who were working abroad or searching for a job and were absent from their household for 12 months or longer during the specified observation period (including persons absent for less than a year and not planning to return to their household during the next 12 months). This category also includes persons who visited their relatives from time to time on weekends or holidays when being on leave, maintaining the possibility of going back abroad for job continuation or search.
