Statistical Analysis of International Migration Using R Software


  • Dobre, Ana Maria


The aim of this paper is to expose the results of my research concerning the migrant’s profile built up by means of logit regression model based on social and demographic characteristics. Within these characteristics could be mentioned: the age group, the gender, the education level, the marital status, the activity, the residence area. The statistical software used is R which represents the most popular and powerful open source programming technology among statisticians during the last years. An application on logistic model and its performance is presented based on 2011 Labour Force Survey (LFS) referring to the international migration in Romania
