This study provides a critical assessment of labour migration data and policies in the ASEAN region. National and international data sources across the range of migration statistics are used to take stock of recent migration patterns and migrant workers’ economic and social outcomes. Emphasis is placed on key statistical gaps that undermine the availability of a comprehensive evidence base required to inform effective and equitable labour migration policies. Significant implications of these evidence gaps for labour admission and migrant integration policies are identified and discussed in the context of the ASEAN regional agenda.
