Eurostat’s Land Use/Cover Area frame Survey (LUCAS) provides harmonised statistics on land use and land cover across the European Union. Land use shows the socio-economic usage of a given land: agriculture, commerce, industry, residential, etc. Meanwhile, Land cover refers to the bio-physical coverage of the land: crops, woodland, buildings, roads, etc. LUCAS is characterised by the unique, in-situ information that it provides. Since 2006, Eurostat has carried out this survey every 3 years. The latest LUCAS survey, covering all the 28 European Union (EU) countries, is taking place in 2018. As in the previous rounds, 2018 has been an opportunity to adapt, adjust and improve the LUCAS methodology in order to obtain the most accurate and harmonised data possible, while still allowing for comparison over time. This paper shows the characteristics of the new sampling design used for 2018, and the innovative methodology which is applied to it. [+]

Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) account for the greatest share of displaced populations globally and there is a growing recognition of the need for accurate and actionable data and statistics on IDPs to inform national response and support policy processes.
As a response to those needs, the 'Technical Report on Statistics of Internally Displaced Persons: Current practice and recommendations for improvement', adopted by the United Nations Statistical Commission in March 2018, provides a stock-take of the current state of official Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) statistics, discusses which coordination mechanisms are requisite when producing IDP statistics and provides preliminary recommendations towards developing a statistical framework on IDPs.
Although a separate product, this report should be read in conjunction with the 'International Recommendations on Refugee Statistics (IRRS)'. The link between these two documents is important. This is not only because of key similarities between the populations concerned, but also because aligning the statistical recommendations they contain is necessary for producing interoperable statistics on different displaced populations in order to inform comprehensive policy and response.

With the growing prominence of forced displacement internationally, there is increasing interest at national and international levels in statistics on refugees, asylum seekers, Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and refugee related populations.
The publication 'International Recommendations on Refugee Statistics (IRRS)', adopted by the United Nations Statistical Commission in March 2018, provides a set of specific recommendations that countries and international organizations can use to improve the collection, collation, disaggregation, reporting, and overall quality of statistics on forcibly displaced populations. The recommendations are intended to help improve national statistics on the stocks and flows of refugee and refugee related populations in their countries, and to help make such statistics comparable internationally.
This report presents recommendations on refugees, asylum seekers and related populations only. A separate publication, the 'Technical Report on Statistics of Internally Displaced Persons: Current practice and recommendations for improvement' addresses the way forward for the development of comparable international standards for statistics on Internally Displaced Persons.

Población inmigrante en la Encuesta Europea del Mercado Laboral y en el censo de la UE: una comparación basada en las cifras de 2011en Estadisticas
This paper provides an overview on the differences and similarities in the characteristics of intra-EU foreign-born populations according to the EU Census and EU Labour Force Survey for the same reference year, 2011. The objective of the analysis is to establish whether it is possible to update the more structural information in the EU Census with the more timely data available in the EU Labour Force Survey. The conclusion is that the current situation is not favourable to combining the two data sources as although data comparability is rather good at an aggregated level, this is much less the case when different breakdowns are analysed. Therefore, it is recommended that best practices on capturing, in a sample, the foreign-born population are shared among Member States so that the foreign-born population can be analysed by its multiple facets.
