The paper will first discuss general problems and limitations related to data collection on international migration, especially regarding their usability and homogeneity as well as harmonisation efforts in this regard. This will heighten the awareness of involved project partners and policy-makers of possible constraints and challenges. Furthermore, advantages and disadvantages of main data sources as well as stock and flow statistics will be discussed. A special focus will be placed on statistics regarding emigration, remittances and irregular migration, as they are of particular importance for the SEE region. In the following chapter, relevant indicators for the key factors of change for measuring longer-term migratory, labour market and human capital processes are defined. The approach is two-fold: a total of 45 relevant indicators have been defined for the measurement of migration processes and effects related to human capital, demographic, socio-economic development and the labour market. These indicators should feed into the metadata assessment of the project and be included in the SEEMIG database. Of these relevant indicators, 15 indicators have been defined as core indicators for the measurement of these processes. These core indicators should serve as a benchmark list of indicators. SEEMIG partner countries and SEE countries in general should undertake measures to be able to produce these indicators in the framework of their future data collection activities. Finally the paper formulates general conclusions for the following project activities.
