    This Project is linked to the following Strand/s:

    Integrated Demographic Estimation and Forecasting

    Migration and Mobility

    Overview

    The project Integrated Modelling of European Migration (IMEM), funded by New Opportunities for Research Funding Agency Cooperation in Europe (NORFACE Migration), brought together academics and researchers with expertise in migration modelling (Southampton Statistical Sciences Research Institute and the ESRC Centre for Population Change), expert knowledge (University of Oslo) and data on migration (Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demographic Institute). The project started in November 2009 and finished in April 2012. Full details can be found on the IMEM database website.

    As a result of this project, the Integrated Modelling of European Migration (IMEM) database was created to provide tables of migration flows among 31 countries in the European Union (EU) and European Free Trade Association (EFTA), as well as to and from the rest of the world.

    The estimated migration flows relate to the flows of long-term migrants as defined in the Recommendations on Statistics of International Migration (United Nations 1998).

    Estimated flows can be presented by country of origin, country of destination, age and sex, for years 2002 to 2008. They also include measures of uncertainty.

    The database is available online at www.imem.cpc.ac.uk
