Inferring migrations: traditional methods and new approaches based on mobile phone, social media, and other big data  (20/07/2016)

Catalog N. :KE-02-16-632-EN-N

This report addresses the question of whether it is technically, financially and legally feasible to estimate geographic mobility and migration flows in the European Union. The study reviews state-of-the-art methods to measure stocks and flows of migrants using traditional data sources but also new and innovative data sources such as mobile phone data and social media data. It finds that it is indeed feasible to estimate geographic mobility and migration flows in the European Union but that that it depends on several important factors such as access to data, legal obstacles and desired outcomes that are outlined in the paper.

Analytical Web Note 1/2016 - Labour Market Transitions  (17/06/2016)

Catalog N. :KE-BM-15-012-EN-N

This Web Note presents empirical evidence on labour market transitions in the European Union (EU) using the new flow statistics from the EU Labour Force Survey (EU‐LFS) and micro-data from the EU Statistics on Income and Living Conditions (EUSILC). While the new transition rates from the EU-LFS have the advantage of being more timely, they provide limited information on socio-demographic characteristics and employment conditions. By contrast, EU-SILC micro-data are less timely, but allow more detailed individual characteristics (age, gender, education, type of contract, etc.) to be brought into the analysis.
