Portrait of Emigrant; 2014–2016 (only in Latvian)
Every year, Central Statistical Bureau makes population estimate and calculates migration. By using administrative data and comparing results of various surveys (for example, Labour Force Survey, EU-SILC survey, Micro-Census, etc.), it was concluded that estimation of migration flows requires a new survey. Thus, in 2017 an External Migration Survey covering 20 thousand households was launched. The households included in the sample for the first time were interviewed at the end of 2017 and will be surveyed for the second time at the end of 2018. When getting ready for the survey, Central Statistical Bureau analysed administrative data on emigrants and drew a portrait of emigrant in 2014–2016.
