The branch also compiles migration statistics. One of the reports published on migration statistics is the 2019 national Migration Profile. The 2019 Migration profile was the first comprehensively compiled overview of migration data in Zambia. It provides an overview of trends, patterns, impact, and governance of migration in Zambia and utilizes data from national censuses and surveys, as well as administrative data and data from other sources. The Migration Profile was developed through a government-led technical working group, co-chaired by ZamStats and the Department of Immigration, in consultation with a broad range of stakeholders and with support from the International Organization for Migration (IOM). The Migration Profile should be updated every 3 years.
