This annual publication analyses recent trends in migration movements and policies in all OECD member countries and selected non-member economies. It includes a detailed description of the flows, the different channels of immigration and the diversity of nationalities involved. Particular attention is paid to the growing number of migrants from China and Russia in recent flows. More detailed regional analyses examine migration within and from Central and Eastern Europe, East and South-East Asia, Latin America and Sub-Saharan Africa.

This volume highlights the role of immigration in population and labour force growth, as well as changes in foreigners’ status with respect to the labour market. This year, particular attention is paid to the rates and determinants of the employment of foreigners. In the first part, a series of thematic boxes serves as a common thread which describes the current state of statistical methods and of data quality in international migration stastistics in various fields (migration flows, irregular migration, stocks of foreigners and immigrants, naturalizations…).

The report also presents measures aimed at improving the management of migration flows and combating irregular immigration. It reflects the increasing interest of member countries in migration for employment, notably in the case of highly qualified workers. Special attention is paid to measures aimed at supporting the integration of immigrants. Three types of initiatives, which can be summarised as “information, incentives, sanctions”, arise from the recently adopted measures.

The reader will also find in this publication: A special chapter devoted to the identification and measurement of immigrants and expatriates in OECD countries. This information is from a new database which classifies the immigrant population by educational attainment and country of birth thus providing for the fisrt time comparable data on immigrants in all OECD countries. A statistical annex containing the latest data on foreign and foreign-born populations, foreign workers, migration flows and naturalisations.
