812-6

wasn't translated in English but in Spanish, Arabic, German, French, Portuguese and Italian
Dans les nombreux pays où ces registres n’existent pas, un certain nombre de fichiers (213-3*), le plus souvent non exhaustifs, servent à des fins plus particulières. Citons les fichiers d’électeurs 3, les fichiers de sécurité sociale 4, les fichiers de contribuables 5, les fichiers de logements 6 qui peuvent, le cas échéant, fournir des statistiques sur les migrations internes au pays.
Thus, voter registration records 3, social security records4or tax-payers records5 may yield information on internal migration.--Nicolas Brouard 12:43, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
  • The Trilingual Demographic Dictionary Arabic-English-French of 1988 uses dwelling record. --Nicolas Brouard 19:44, 11 June 2012 (CEST)
Thus, voter registration records 3, social security records 4 tax-payers records 5 or dwelling records 6 may yield information on internal migration.


814-3

This seems problematic.

One cannot use 2 censuses both to get survival ratios AND estimate net migration. Need to clarify that there needs to be a 3rd census to use to get survival ratios I think.--Stan BECKER 20:27, 25 November 2014 (CET)


814-4

place-of-birth statistics 4★ Changed from non-ref term to new text term.--Michel GUILLOT 18:03, 9 August 2012 (CEST)

816-8

The second part of the sentence is missing in English:
Suivant qu’on travaille sur la population du lieu de départ (801-4) et les émigrants de ce lieu ou sur la population du lieu d’arrivée (801-5) et les immigrants vers ce lieu, on parle de migration sélective 7 ou de migration différentielle 8.
The term selectivity of migration 7 indicates that the comparison is between the in-migrants and the population from which they were drawn, at the area of origin.--Nicolas Brouard 18:13, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
  • The Trilingual Demographic Dictionary Arabic-English-French of 1988 uses differential migration* and migration difference*.
The English version talks about comparing in-migrants with the origin population, while the French version talks about comparing out-migrants for this comparison. It seems like this is an error. The correct comparison should be: out-migrants vs. origin population, and in-migrants vs. destination population.--Michel GUILLOT 18:14, 9 August 2012 (CEST)
  • The term selectivity of migration 7 indicates that the comparison is between the in-migrants and the population from which they were drawn, at the area of origin (801-4). When comparing the characteristics of the in-migrants to those of the population at the place of arrival (801-5) the term differential migration 8★ or migration difference 8★ is sometimes used.
  • 7. For example, the selectivity of migration from Mexico was decreasing because differences in characteristics between migrants and nonmigrants fade over time; also the origins of Mexican immigrants was increasingly diverse because of the spread of Mexican migration networks in the USA.

  • Michel,I am not sure that this is an error. Please check my proposition. --Nicolas Brouard 20:09, 18 September 2012 (CEST)
  • Nicolas, I checked both English and French versions. In my opinion you are right for both definitions in-migrants could be used. However, I think that for the first one out-migrants fit better with the French version and it makes the text more fluid . We may say for instance "The term selectivity of migration indicates that the comparison is between the out-migrants and the population at the area of origin (801-4)."--Elena Ambrosetti 15:49, 10 October 2012 (CEST)
