|As members of the Global
Migration Group (GMG) working group on data and research, the
Population Division of UN/DESA, in collaboration with UNICEF and other
members of the data and research working group, has prepared this
common set of indicators.
The indicators presented in these profiles are divided in four major parts. Part I covers topics such as the adoption of legal instruments related to international migration. Part II presents a set of population indicators including population estimates and projections, rates of change and the effects of future international migration on total population. In Part III, several development indicators are presented, covering life expectancy, GDP per capita, remittances and others. Part IV covers international migration by major age-group and country of origin and destination, refugee population by country of origin and destination and number of tertiary students by country of origin and destination as well as the number of emigrants in OECD countries by level of education.
