This survey is the most comprehensive specialized survey on migration in Armenia. It captures 7890 households, a sampling which provides data representative not only on the national level but at the level of administrative units of Armenia. The survey addresses not only internal and external movements, scopes of immigration and emigration and return, but also the migrants’ savings and remittances and migration’s development effect on population and households.
In implementation of the national survey on migration in Armenia, the IOM partnered with the Armenian National Statistics Service and the Russian-Armenian (Slavonic) University (RAU).
The survey anonymous database is available online at http://armstat.am/file/doc/99486863.7z and can be used by for further research on migration in Armenia.
The survey was conducted and the report was published within the framework of the IOM’s Project “Enhancing Knowledge and Policy Dialogue on the Role of Migration in Armenia’s Economic Development and Poverty Reduction” funded by the Institute for the Study of International Migration at Georgetown University with funding from the MacArthur Foundation; and Project “Strengthening Evidence-Based Management of Labour Migration in Armenia” funded by the European Union and the IOM Development Fund, as well as the RAU’s Project “Sample Survey to Assess Migration Situation of the Republic of Armenia” funded by the Armenian State Committee of Science of the Ministry of Education and Science of Armenia.
