The European Commission's Knowledge Centre on Migration and Demography (KCMD) has expanded the datasets within its Dynamic Data Hub to cover migration flows, stocks and residence permits and time series of selected demographic and socio-economic data such as population growth, GDP, labour force and other World Development Indicators.
