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.

Expanding the scope of the tool geographically and thematically, the new data help understand migration in a wider context and unleash the potential for the cross-disciplinary analysis of the drivers behind migration.

The new tools centralise migration related data to better understand migration flows, trends and their impact on societies across the EU.
