Duration of Stay
Abstract:The database contains information on the duration of stay of the population aged 15 and over, by detailed country of birth and gender. This information is available through census data for 14 countries and through labour force surveys for nine countries. In order to harmonise these two types of sources, a three‐category classification has been defined: less than five years, five to ten years and more than ten years. For the countries with census data, more detailed information, with a six‐category classification, is available. It is important to note that, for a couple of countries, the data on duration of stay are missing for a significant share of the foreign‐born population. This is particularly the case in Italy, Greece, Ireland and France.
