Migrant Data Matrices Data Cube

The Migrant Data Matrices data cube is presented in a number of formats; alphabetically, by survey reference year and for each topic. Each source product data cube is represented by a Product name (i.e. column headers). If data is available for a migrant related data item a 'yes' appears in the corresponding row of that data item in the column.
