Demographic and economic module
The demographic and economic module of the database contains data on migration flows and stocks obtained from four kinds of sources:
- National sources in major destination countries of migrants originating in India;
- National sources in India;
- Indian sources in destination countries, in particular Indian consular authorities’ registers in EU Member States;
- Other sources including: academic work, estimates provided by international organizations, original data obtained from reprocessing existing files, etc.
A standardised list of tables on stocks (migrant populations distributed by specific variables, refugees, etc.) and flows (arrivals and departures of migrants and asylum seekers, naturalisation, movements on labour markets, circulation of students, money transfers, etc.) is available. Tables are missing when appropriate data are not available in national statistics.
