Syrian Migration to Europe, 2011-21: Data Inventory

  • 1. University of Southampton


This inventory includes metadata on various quantitative and qualitative sources of information on Syrian migration to Europe in 2011-21 that can be used for agent-based modelling purposes, with each source accompanied by data quality assessment. The files are available in a TSV and MS Excel format. The judgement-based quality ratings provided are specific to the requirements of agent-based modelling, as detailed in the background paper. A queryable version of the inventory is available on the website of the project Bayesian Agent-Based Population Studies (BAPS), funded by the European Research Council (725232): The methodology behind assembling this dataset and assessing the individual data sources according to pre-defined quality criteria is detailed in:
