Back in February, the European Commission Joint Research Centre published a report on data innovation applications in demography, migration and human mobility. This report is a very welcome contribution summarising all the relevant case applications in the field of migration and human mobility.
I often get asked: can I use a logistic regression on aggregate data?
We generally associate logistic regressions to individual-level or micro data encoding attributes into a binary category, such as moving 1 or not 0.
A Quick Practical Guide One of my research areas of interest revolves around understanding human mobility and migration flows. Key attributes of flow data are that they are counts and a right-skewed, overdispesed and often zero-inflated distribution.
Net Internal Migration Rate Across Europe At the end of last year, we published a paper assessing the impact of internal migration on redistributing population within European countries. Specifically we assessed the impact of internal migration on promoting population concentration or deconcentration.
R Markdown This post introduces our recently published R package, CIM, to measure the impacts of migration on local population structures. We developed the methodology in this paper in 2018.
