Migration statistics: do the official figures meet the needs?
Royal Statistical Society, 12 Errol Street, London EC1Y 8LX

Both the Home Office and ONS have been undertaking extensive work to improve the quality, range and presentation of international migration statistics for the UK.  This is an area of great political sensitivity and it is vital that the policy debate is informed by robust and trusted evidence.  The speakers will outline what has been achieved so far and plans for the future.  Professor John Salt from the UCL Migration Research Unit will give an external perspective on progress so far.  The speakers are amongst the most knowledgeable and experienced in this field and there will be an opportunity to question them about this important set of statistics.

  • 'Developments in the measuring and reporting of international migration statistics'- Sarah Crofts and Paul Vickers (ONS)
  •  ‘Enhancing Home Office Statistics on UK Migration Control’ - Chris Kershaw and David Matz (HO)
  • John Salt – Migration Research Unit, UCL
  • Open forum – the speakers will respond to questions from the floor.


Joint meeting of the Official Statistics and Social Statistics Sections.
