This briefing considers some of the major issues that currently exist in relation to data on migration and development, highlighting examples of 'best evidence' in the areas of macro, micro and contextual/impact data. The briefing also discusses policy areas where hard evidence is difficult to find, and considers key areas that are often overlooked by policy-makers but where better data collection is theoretically possible. Finally, it outlines some of the steps that could be taken to improve data on migration flows and their relationship with development.
