Measuring remittances through surveys: Methodological and conceptual issues for survey designers and data analysts

This paper will be of interest to those interested in mining remittance data from national surveys. The authors methodically present the many aspects of remittances that researchers might wish to answer, such as how much migrants send, the recipients of the remittances, the effects of the remittances, and the kinds of remittances. Common errors and weak spots in methodology are also covered to give readers a well rounded picture.
