This is a chapter on the International Organisation for Migration (IOM)’s flagship publication World Migration Report. The World Migration Report is a biannual publication that responds to a clear and growing need for evidence-based research and analysis on migration at a time of increasing complexity of migration and its prominence as a public policy issue and newsworthy topic. The World Migration Report has broad appeal and garners keen interest globally, including from States, international organisations, non-governmental organisations, and civil society.

IDSAI Case Study:

As part of IDSAI's initiative for project collaboration with a data science student, Nitzan and Professor Anna Mountford-Zimdars got in touch.

This resulted in a collaborative research project on accessibility to fertility treatment in England with Bobbie Jones, who studied for an MSc in Data Science. As part of this project, we collected public and administrative data to create mapping of fertility clinics in England and developed a new index for measuring geographic accessibility to fertility treatment, which can also be applied to other types of services.  
An article based on this project has been accepted for publication by the Human Fertility journal:
