3.1. Data description

Generally speaking, a crude rate is calculated as the ratio of the number of events to the average population of the respective area in a given year. For easier presentation, it is multiplied by 1 000; the result is therefore expressed per 1 000 persons (of the average population).

In this particular case, the crude rate of net migration plus adjustment is defined as the ratio of net migration plus adjustment during the year to the average population in that year, expressed per 1 000 inhabitants. The net migration plus adjustment is the difference between the total change and the natural change of the population.

3.4. Statistical concepts and definitions

Net migration plus statistical adjustment

 In the context of the annual demographic balance, Eurostat produces net migration figures by taking the difference between total population change and natural change; this concept is referred to as net migration plus statistical adjustment. The statistics on 'net migration plus statistical adjustment' are therefore affected by all the statistical inaccuracies in the two components of this equation, especially population change. From one country to another 'net migration plus statistical adjustment' may cover, besides the difference between inward and outward migration, other changes observed in the population figures between 1 January in two consecutive years which cannot be attributed to births, deaths, immigration and emigration.

Generally speaking, crude rates are expressed as "change per 1000 persons" (of the average population).

6. Institutional Mandate Top
6.1. Institutional Mandate - legal acts and other agreements

Until Reference year 2012, data needed to calculate the indicator were collected from National Statistical Institutes and on voluntary basis. Starting from reference year 2013, EP and Council Regulation No 1260/2013 on European demographic statistics and related Commission implementing regulation No 205/2014 will enter into force.

In line with the Community legal framework and the European Statistics Code of Practice Eurostat disseminates European statistics on Eurostat's website (see item 10 - 'Dissemination format') respecting professional independence and in an objective, professional and transparent manner in which all users are treated equitably. The detailed arrangements are governed by the Eurostat protocol on impartial access to Eurostat data for users.

13. Relevance Top
13.1. Relevance - User Needs

As already described in 3.1, the indicator is defined as the ratio of net migration plus adjustment during the year to the average population in that year, expressed in 1,000 inhabitants. The crude rate of net migration plus adjustment is the difference between the crude rate of population change and the crude rate of natural change - that is, net migration is considered the part of the total population change that is not attribuable to births and deaths.
