Conformity to relevant internationally recognized standards

The standard is compatible with the United Nations' "Recommendations on Statistics of International Migration, Revision 1", 1998. This publication defines an international migrant as a person who changes their country of usual residence, which is analogous to the definitions of external migrant and external in-migrant. This standard is also compatible with the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe's "Conference of European Statisticians Recommendations for the 2010 Censuses of Population and Housing", 2006 relating to internal migration and mobility.
