Global Migration Indicators Report 2018
Prepared by IOM’s Global Migration Data Analysis Centre (GMDAC), this report summarizes key global migration trends based on the latest statistics, showcasing 21 indicators across 17 migration topics.
The report is based on statistics from a variety of sources, which can be easily accessed through the Portal.
The report compiles the most up-to-date statistics on topics including labour migration, refugees, international students, remittances, migrant smuggling, migration governance and many others, enabling policy-makers and the public alike to have an overview of the scale and dynamics of migration around the world.
The report is the first to link the global migration governance agenda with a discussion of migration data. The topics chosen are of particular relevance to the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The report discusses the state of play of data for each topic and suggests ways to improve this.
