We are very pleased to annouce the initial draft programme for the next annual conference of the Migration Statistics User Forum. The conference is set to take place on 21 September 2016 from 10:30 to 16.30 with facilities being kindly provided by the Home Office at the London HQ at 2 Marsham Street. We are planning presentations in the morning on new developments in ONS, Home Office, DWP and HMRC data relating to migration as well as a variety of other presentations in the afternoon that conclude with a panel session for you to ask questions.
We have designed the conference to appeal to a wide range of users of international migration statistics. This relates to the Migration Statistics User Forum’s aims to provide a forum for discussion on these statistics and to enable users to discuss their needs and use of data and for producers to consult on presentation and changes.
