Description of the OECD's work on Long-Term Care.
These country notes present the recent changes in migration policies as well as a table showing the most recent statistics on migration flows and on the results of the immigrants in the labour market.
International migration flows are essential for the effective functioning of our economies. Even in times of crisis and fiscal constraint, a holistic approach is required to fully reap its full benefits, said Angel Gurría, OECD Secretary-General.
Migration has started to pick up again, driven largely by people moving within the European Union, after three years of continuous decline during the crisis. But the employment prospects for immigrants have worsened, with around one in two unemployed immigrants in Europe still looking for work after more than 12 months, according to a new OECD report.
This publication provides an analysis of recent developments in migration movements and policies in OECD countries and two analytical chapters, covering the fiscal impact of immigration in OECD countries and the discrimination against immigrants.
Health data constitutes a significant resource in most OECD countries that could be used to improve population health, the quality of health care and the performance of health systems. The 2010 Health Ministerial Meeting called for OECD support to strengthen national health information infrastructure to provide the evidence needed to improve health care quality and the performance of health systems.

Health financing systems have undergone considerable change over recent decades. Better resource management has led countries to introduce new financial mechanisms and innovative institutional arrangements. The SHA 2011 Financing Framework mirrors such changes, enabling health accountants and analysts to obtain a clear picture of health care financing and provide policy-relevant information concerning the structure and flows of funds.
