Measuring the Environmental Dimensions of Human Migration; a Demographer's Toolkit

This working paper is the product of brainstorming session at a workshop on “Migration, Urbanization, and Climate Change” at the Institute of Behavioral Science, University of Colorado Boulder, USA. The paper demonstrates how environmental migration data might be collected and analyzed in order to better understand this phenomenon. The authors consider in depth the various data and methods used to quantitatively measure the phenomenon and include four national case studies (Burkina Faso, the United States, Bangladesh, and South Africa) as examples of each main method in practice.
