User Meeting on Microdata Research on Labour and Social Security - May 16th 2013


Toolkit

Toolkit

  • Ministry of Interior and Kingdom Relations (BZK) commissioned Expertisecentrum Flexwonen Arbeidsmigranten to build a toolkit for municipalities to estimate the amount of migrant workers in their region

  • Challenge: many migrant workers (and their families) are not registered

  • It is estimated that in 2009, only 25 per cent of all migrant workers was registered in a Dutch municipality (GBA) and 50 per cent was registered in GBA and/or wage tax registration (Polisadministratie)

  • Statistics Netherlands (Centre for Policy Related Statistics) was asked to map the regional distribution of migrant workers who are registered in the GBA and/or wage tax registration

Contribution of statistics netherlands

Contribution of Statistics Netherlands

  • Three custom made, aggregated tables:

    • GBA-registered first-generation immigrants from Central, Eastern and Southern Europe

    • GBA-registered first-generation migrant workers from Central, Eastern and Southern Europe

    • Not GBA-registered, wage tax-registered, first-generation migrant workers from Central, Eastern and Southern Europe

  • Main addition: regional distribution; all tables are split up by region and municipality
