Migration survey released

Armstat released the migration survey covering the years 2007-2013. The data is available in SPSS format (.sav), and can be easily converted and read in Stata (a bit more complicated if using a 64 bit computer and do not have the software to directly convert). The sample consists of 31118 individuals.
As the funding organization states, this is "a comprehensive national representative household survey on migration of Armenia’s population in 2007-2013, which measures immigration, emigration, internal migration, return, and addresses the migrants’ savings, remittances and migration’s development effect on population and households."
This is a very valuable and timely source of information on the mobility of the population.
