Metholodologies for the Estimation of Stocks of Irregular Migrants

This paper discusses how to measure these 'hard to reach' populations, either directly or indirectly. Although it is impossible to get an entirely accurate number of undocumented migrants, Jandl offers a number of strategies reader must find appropriate. He defines the most common methodologies used to estimate numbers, presenting indirect, direct, and combined approaches that rely on various sorts of data, as large scale as censuses or as small scale as expert opinions.
