Statistics for SDG indicator 10.7.1: Draft Guidelines for their Collection
Goal 10.7 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) calls for facilitating orderly, safe, and responsible migration and mobility of people, including through implementation of planned and well- managed migration policies. The objective of this document is to provide guidelines that may assist those aiming to produce the statistics needed to calculate SDG indicator 10.7.1, “Recruitment cost borne by employee as a proportion of monthly income earned in country of destination.”
These guidelines have been prepared in consultation with several national statistical offices and other UN agencies to develop a recruitment cost indicator that can be monitored as part of the SDG agenda, drawing on the experience and lessons learned from the surveys jointly conducted by KNOMAD and ILO. This work is expected to contribute to identifying the size of, and setting a global target to reduce, recruitment costs globally.
The guidelines include discussions on objectives and uses of the indicator, definition, considerations on data collection items, programmes and methods, as well as consideration on relevant tabulations.
