Final Report - PROMINSTAT (Promoting comparative quantitative research in the field of migration and integration in Europe)

Project ID: 28972
Funded under: FP6-CITIZENS


This is the final report for the PROMINSTAT project. The report notes that information collected should be presented in the most detailed breakdowns available to avoid incomparability due to different categorisations. Second, the data collected should be made accessible to researchers more easily in order to allow for exhaustive utilisation of existent information. Third, a better and closer cooperation between data owners on the national and on the international level is an important element of improving data availability and comparability in Europe. Fourth, oversampling of target populations in surveys and the collection of more longitudinal data are important steps toward improving the data situation and opportunities to measure migration, integration and discrimination issues. Finally, general awareness-raising activities regarding the importance of reliable data collection could improve the willingness to provide desired information.
