Abstract: The provision of detailed and comparable international migration statistics prove vital for policy makers and academics alike. In this paper we present the first complete collection of international bilateral migrant stock data for OECD destination countries from the 2010 census round. We analyse the data along a number of critical dimensions (origin, age, education, gender) in historical context, highlighting the most important patterns. These include the continued surge in migration to the OECD, the meteoric rise in high skilled migration, the inexorable increase in female migration and especially the migration of high skilled females. Given their reliability, it is hoped that the data presented in the paper will set the standard for data collection and dissemination in the years to come.
