Migration, integration and xenophobia are increasingly important topics in today’s political discussion and in scientific research spanning the breadth of social and behavioral sciences. The rapidly changing nature of immigration in many countries necessitates timely data for researchers and decision-makers alike. This special data collection by the GESIS Data Archive offers high-quality data on migration decisions, integration in host societies and attitudes toward immigrants and ethnic minorities. A growing number of national and comparative studies are available that feature ethnic oversampling, large sample sizes and longitudinal data collection. These data facilitate cutting-edge research on many migration-related issues. The overview presented on this page compiles the data sets currently available through the GESIS Data Archive into three categories of migration data:

  • Studies on Migration and Migration Decisions
  • Studies on Immigrant Integration
  • Studies on Migration-related Attitudes
