Counting Immigrants and Expatriates in OECD Countries: A New Perspective

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has long been concerned with the state of immigration, both across the globe and within its member nations. This latest report from the OECD's Social, Employment and Migration Working Papers series takes on the methodology deployed to count immigrants and expatriates in OECD countries. Authored by Jean-Christopher and George Lemaitre, the report takes data from the 2000 round of censuses and attempts to provide a detailed and comparable portrait of these various immigrant populations. Some of the initial findings of the report include the observation that the percentage of the foreign-born in European OECD countries is generally higher than the percentage of foreigners and that the largest developing countries may in fact be benefiting from an increasingly mobile populace.
