Project objective

The Migration Survey intends to provide quantitative data of labor migration for analysis and later cross comparison with datasets gathered from other test countries. Information obtained from this endeavor will help guide labor migration efforts in Armenia with the European Union, which other counties have begun to initiate over the past several years. The Migration Survey of 2011-2012 has given CRRC-Armenia an opportunity to continue building upon data collection which will assist with development of well rounded policy recommendations at all institutional levels directed towards issues within the field of labor migration.

Research design

Full data collection survey, sample size – 4000: with 2600 potential migrants and 1400 returning migrants (18-50 years old) in Yerevan and marzes.
