Handbook on Measuring International Migration through Population Censuses

This handbook explores how population censuses can be manipulated in order to extract international migration figures. There are not only sections that present relevant definitions needed to harmonise migratory data, but also examples of questions that help users capture the sought-after data. Anecdotes from the national level are included to show concepts put into action. Potential pitfalls and common practices are also covered in detail.
