The Knowledge Centre on Migration and Demography-JRC and Cost Action ETHMIGSURVEYDATA jointly organise a policy dialogue to discuss whether and how survey data on migrants and ethnic minorities could further contribute to improve the current landscape of EU indicators. The dialogue takes stocks of the opportunities and challenges offered by surveys targeting migrants and ethnic minorities, potentially complementing EU-wide surveys such as the EU Labour Force Survey (LFS) and the EU Statistics on Income and Living Conditions (EU-SILC).

Since the April 2010 Zaragoza declaration, the European Commission has been cooperating with Member States to further develop a set of common indicators on migrant integration, particularly in the four priority areas of employment, education, social inclusion and active citizenship. Drawing on harmonised statistical data, Eurostat has significantly enhanced data comparability between the EU Member States. Eurostat updates annually the indicators, allowing for comparison between the general and immigrant population, disaggregated by country of birth/citizenship, gender and age group. These indicators are key instruments for policymakers to inform strategic actions on integration, the programming and implementation of EU funds and coordination in the context of the European Semester.
