Data are an essential part of any programme that seeks to improve understanding of migration as well as improve legislation. The Gulf Labour Markets, Migration and Population (GLMM) programme has developed a database that relies, first and foremost, on the national data and documents of the GCC countries. It aims at collecting, to the extent possible, data and documents relevant for the understanding of labour markets, migration and populations in these countries. It assesses the quality of the data and makes them available to users in a user-friendly format.
Further objectives include making some key data comparable and to develop an interactive database.
GLMM encourages users to signal and submit data that is not yet included in the database. It also encourages researchers to use the GLMM data to produce new tables and graphs that could be posted on the GLMM website to further the understanding of Gulf migration, population and labour markets.
