This set of three diskettes presents the IMS (International Migration Statistics) database on international migration for the OECD member countries. "Part I contains time series of migration statistics based on reports submitted by the correspondents of the OECD's Continuous Reporting System on Migration network (better known by its French acronym SOPEMI). Part II contains tables describing the origin and labour market characteristics of immigrant populations based on survey and census data from Eurostat and national governments. Part III contains social and economic indicators for both OECD and non-OECD countries based on data from various national and international institutions. The data is embedded in Beyond 20/20, a windows-based software package. Each part of IMS is divided into a number of files containing a table of data covering one or more variables (e.g. inflows of migrants, stocks of migrants) and dimensions (e.g. country of origin, age)."
