Manual on Child-Specific Data Capacity-Strengthening on Children on the Move
The “Manual on Child-Specific Data Capacity-Strengthening on Children on the Move” is the result of a highly collaborative and multi-step effort that involved multiple members of the International Data Alliance for Children on the Move (IDAC) a cross-sectoral global coalition jointly led by Eurostat, IOM, OECD, UNHCR and UNICEF.
This Manual was conceptualized and developed by IDAC’s Working Group 1, which is led by the Hellenic Statistical Authority (ELSTAT) and focuses on national data capacity-strengthening to ensure that migrant and displaced children are counted and seen in policy and program design.
This unique manual on children on the move (e.g., migrant children, refugee children or asylum seekers) reflects in a comprehensive and clear manner the individual aspects, challenges, and standard procedures for developing, collecting, processing, and publishing reliable data on children moving due to conflict, changes in socio-economic circumstances, natural disasters, etc.
The “Manual on child-specific Data Capacity-Strengthening on Children on the Move” is available here.

On 20 and 21 November 2023, the Hellenic Statistical Authority (ELSTAT) presented the Manual on child-specific Data Capacity-Strengthening on Children on the Move, in the frame of a solemn event held in Athens Conservatoire, gathering many participants from Greece and abroad.
The event was honored by the presence of the six Heads of Statistical Authorities of the European Union (Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, Latvia, Malta, Slovakia), UNICEF Representative in Greece, the Secretary-General for Vulnerable Persons and Institutional Protection of the Ministry of Migration and Asylum and senior officials from UNHCR, IOM, OECD, UNICEF, and Central Government bodies of Greece, in an effort to highlight the importance of official statistics and the challenges of data disaggregation in National Statistical Systems.
