International migration policies and data

Database on Immigrants in OECD and non-OECD Countries: DIOC

 

Several years ago, the OECD started to compile data based on population censuses of OECD countries for the 2000 census round.

Since then, another round was added to the first one. And the OECD and the World Bank have joined their efforts in a project aimed at extending the coverage of the Database on Immigrants in OECD Countries (DIOC) to non-OECD destination countries (DIOC-E or DIOC extended). This data collection made it possible to calculate e‌migration rates by skill level.

The datasets include information on demographic characteristics (age and gender), duration of stay, labour market outcomes (labour market status, occupations, sectors of activity), fields of study, educational attainment and the place of birth.
