SDG-0

MIGRATION DATA FOR THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS (SDGs)

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development recognizes for the first time the contribution of migration to sustainable development. Migration is a cross-cutting issue, relevant to all of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) (left). 11 out of 17 goals contain targets and indicators that are relevant to migration or mobility. The Agenda's core principle to "leave no one behind", including migrants, requires data disaggregation by migratory status, opening up significant migration data needs but also the opportunity to improve migration data.

Spin the SDGs wheel to explore the migration-relevant SDG indicators and data sources.

Migration in the SDGs

The SDGs’ central reference to migration is made in target 10.7 to facilitate orderly, safe, regular and responsible migration and mobility of people, including through the implementation of planned and well-managed migration policies, which appears under Goal 10 to reduce inequality within and among countries. Other targets that directly reference migration mention trafficking, remittances, international student mobility and more.

Migration is also a cross-cutting issue which is relevant to all 17 of the SDGs and most of the 169 targets in the Agenda. Therefore, it is important to go beyond the specific references to migration and to acknowledge and address the mutually supporting relationships between migration and each of the Goals and targets. 

The need for timely, reliable and comparable data on migration

As was the case for the Millennium Development Goals, the 2030 Agenda includes a voluntary and multilayered follow-up mechanism to review progress on the SDG targets over the next 15 years. National reviews will be the linchpin of the follow-up and review of the implementation of the SDGs, with regional, global and thematic reviews being conducted to complement the process.

Aside from the global-level indicators, governments are encouraged to develop their own indicators to measure progress towards the Goals and targets. There is a need for countries themselves to improve their migration data capacity and to produce to track progress on their commitments and generate meaningful reporting on migration in the context of the SDGs. Steps must be taken to improve capacity to generate timely, reliable, and comparable data on migration to help guide policy makers in devising evidence-based policies and plans of action to tackle migration aspects of the SDGs. Several countries already collect considerable amounts of data on migration, but lack the mechanisms to centralize, disaggregate and cross reference all data collected from various branches of the government. Better data sharing within the government and among countries will also improve policy coherence, which is a key condition to achieving the SDGs.

A key focus of the SDG process is to promote greater disaggregation in data to better serve certain vulnerable groups and ensure no one is left behind. To this end, target 17.18 calls specifically for data to be disaggregated by migratory status. Doing this is an opportunity to gain better data on different dimensions of migrants’ situations to understand better their living conditions, and to understand how migration impacts on health, income, education and other areas. Greater disaggregation is also necessary in order to integrate migration as a cross-cutting theme across other development sectors. Therefore, a key focus for migration data capacity building as part of the 2030 Agenda will also be to increase disaggregation of all data by migration-related variables.

Overall, there is a need to improve migration data locally, nationally, regionally and internationally for SDG monitoring purposes, and governments need to work towards building their capacity to this end. Improving migration data is a crucial step to improving migration governance, and the SDG implementation process can help kick-start efforts to do this.

Reliable and measurable indicators should form the basis of SDG data collection

Meeting the requirements of SDG follow up and review mechanisms is challenging. As of late 2017, no data exist for two thirds of the 232 official internationally-set SDG indicators[1]. Further, the global-level migration indicators are relatively under-developed and currently none of the IAEG-proposed global indicators that relate to migration are Tier 1 (i.e. they do not have established methodologies). Therefore, formulating global-level indicators for the migration SDGs is an important ongoing area of activity. 

IOM and the Population Division of UNDESA have been working on developing a methodology to measure the indicator 10.7.2 “the number of countries having well-managed migration policies”. This indicator is based on an assessment of six policy domains found in the Migration Governance Framework, adopted by the IOM Council in 2015. It is also inspired by the work IOM is conducting in collaboration with the Economist Intelligence Unit on developing Migration Governance Indicators .

Further, the Migration Governance Indicators can also be used for the SDGs. These use 90 qualitative questions to measure performance across five domains, drawn from the Migration Governance Framework. It is a gap analysis tool that is not meant for ranking countries on their migration policies, but rather aims to offer insights on policy levers that countries can action to strengthen their migration governance, as well as identify best practices of future programming. The results of this assessment can also be used by government to report on their progress in achieving target 10.7 as well as other migration-related targets.

SDG 1: END POVERTY IN ALL ITS FORMS EVERYWHERE

  • Target 1.1: By 2030, eradicate extreme poverty for all people everywhere, currently measured as people living on less than $1.25 a day
  • Target 1.3: Implement nationally appropriate social protection systems and measures for all, including floors, and by 2030 achieve substantial coverage of the poor and the vulnerable

Migration-relevant SDG targets and indicators:

Target 1.1

By 2030, eradicate extreme poverty for all people everywhere, currently measured as people living on less than $1.25 a day

Indicator: 1.1.1 Proportion of population below the international poverty line, by sex, age, employment status and geographical location (urban/rural)

Migration relevance: Data can be disaggregated by migratory status.

Rationale: This indicator assesses the proportion of people under the extreme poverty line.

Data sources: The indicator can be disaggregated for migrants versus non-migrants, or population living in migrant households versus population living in non-migrant households. Data can be collected through household surveys that include questions on migratory status.

Target 1.3

Implement nationally appropriate social protection systems and measures for all, including floors, and by 2030 achieve substantial coverage of the poor and the vulnerable.

Indicator: 1.3.1 Proportion of population covered by social protection floors/systems, by sex, distinguishing children, unemployed persons, older persons, persons with disabilities, pregnant women, newborns, work-injury victims and the poor and the vulnerable.

Migration relevance: Data can be disaggregated by migratory status.

Rationale: Social protection floors are nationally defined sets of basic social security guarantees that should ensure, as a minimum, that over the life cycle, all those in need have access to essential health care and basic income security which together secure effective access to goods and services defined as necessary at the national level (ILO social protection floors recommendation #202).

Data sources: The ILO collects data on: (1) people covered by social protection floors/total population; (2) unemployed receiving unemployment benefit/total unemployment (3) employed women covered by maternity benefits/total female employment (4) people above the statutory pensionable age receiving an old-age pension/ people above the statutory pensionable age.

SDG 3: Good health and well-being

Goal: Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all

Targets: By 2030:

  • 3.1: Reduce the global maternal mortality ratio to less than 70 per 100,000 live births
  • 3.2: End preventable deaths of newborns and children under 5 years of age

  • 3.3: End the epidemics of AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and neglected tropical diseases and combat hepatitis, water-borne diseases and other communicable diseases

  • 3.4: Reduce by one third premature mortality from non- communicable diseases through prevention and treatment and promote mental health and well-being

Rationale: While international migration is intimately related to legal and sociological notions of nationality and sovereignty, the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (CESCR) has articulated that nationality must not be used as a ground for discrimination in relation to health care and other rights in the Covenant. The rights of irregular migrants are specifically mentioned.

Data sources: N/a

 

Indicator: 3.8.2 Proportion of population with large household expenditures on health as a share of total household expenditure or income

Migration relevance: Data can be disaggregated by migratory status.

Rationale: While international migration is intimately related to legal and sociological notions of nationality and sovereignty, the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (CESCR) has articulated that nationality must not be used as a ground for discrimination in relation to health care and other rights in the Covenant. The rights of irregular migrants are specifically mentioned.

Data sources: Household survey data and expenditure surveys

Indicator: 4.1.1 Proportion of children and young people: (a) in grades 2/3; (b) at the end of primary; and (c) at the end of lower secondary achieving at least a minimum proficiency level in (i) reading and (ii) mathematics, by sex

Migration relevance: Data can be disaggregated by migratory status.

Rationale: This is a global indicator which addresses most closely the fundamental right to education.

Data sources: Various cross-national learning assessments including PASEC, PIRLS, PISA, SACMEQ, TERCE and TIMSS.

Target 4.3

By 2030, ensure equal access for all women and men to affordable and quality technical, vocational and tertiary education, including university

Indicator: 4.3.1 Participation rate of youth and adults in formal and non-formal education and training in the previous 12 months, by sex

Migration relevance: Data can be disaggregated by migratory status.

Rationale: Access to education: Whether school-age migrants are in school as others, and whether migrants are in informal government-provided training provided by government.

Data sources: Censuses and household surveys.

Target 4.6

By 2030, ensure that all youth and a substantial proportion of adults, both men and women, achieve literacy and numeracy

Indicator: 4.6.1  Proportion of population in a given age group achieving at least a fixed level of proficiency in functional (a) literacy and (b) numeracy skills, by sex

Migration relevance: Data can be disaggregated by migratory status.

Rationale: Basic education level of migrants.

Data sources: Skills' assessment surveys of the adult population (e.g. PIAAC, STEP, LAMP, RAMAA) and national adult literacy surveys.

Target 4.b

By 2020, substantially expand globally the number of scholarships available to developing countries, in particular LDCs, SIDS and African countries, for enrolment in higher education, including vocational training and ICT, technical, engineering and scientific programmes, in developed countries and other developing countries

Indicator: 4.b.1 Volume of official development assistance flows for scholarships by sector and type of study

Source: United Nations Statistics Division, Improving migration data in the context of the 2030 Agenda, 15 June 2017

SDG 5: GENDER EQUALITY

Goal: Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls

  • Target 5.5: Ensure women’s full and effective participation and equal opportunities for leadership at all levels of decision-making in political, economic and public life

Migration-relevant SDG targets and indicators:

Target 5.5

Ensure women’s full and effective participation and equal opportunities for leadership at all levels of decision-making in political, economic and public life

Indicator: 5.5.2 Proportion of women in managerial positions

Migration relevance: Data can be disaggregated by migratory status.

Rationale: Being a migrant and a woman is a double disadvantage in the labour market. Women are less likely to be in managerial position and migrant women are more disadvantaged than migrant men.

Data sources: Data can be collected in censuses and in labour force surveys. Managerial positions are defined using ISCO classification. Data can also be captured through administrative sources. For household surveys there are two obstacles: (a) very few surveys collect migration information; (b) sampling frame does not have information on migrants for oversampling.
