Household surveys: A key potential source of data on migration
For most countries in the world, the most common existing data sources to collect data on international migration are population censuses and other traditional sources such as administrative records.

Bilsborrow, Professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, explains the limitations of these data sources and explores the potential existing household surveys hold for future data collection. (This is part 1 of a blog on household and specialized surveys for collecting migration data. Part 2 is available here.)
