The Economic and Social Council at its fourth session, 28 February to 29 March 1947, recommended that the United Nations publish "a demographic yearbook, containing regular series of basic demographic statistics, comparable within and among themselves, and relevant calculations of comparable rates." This action of the Economic and Social Council stemmed from the report of the first session of the Statistical Commission, which had recommended that "demographic data concerning the different countries of the world be assembled and published by the United Nations," and from the report of the first session of the Population Commission, which had stated its belief that "the regular provision of accurate, comparable and comprehensive statistical and other data concerning populations and population movements is of the greatest importance to the United Nations and to the specialized agencies," and recommended that there be authorized ". . . in addition to any inclusion of population statistics in general annual or other periodic publications of the United Nations, the publication by the Secretary General of a demographic yearbook."

Migrations internationales

Les tableaux statistiques des migrations internationales peuvent donner lieu à beaucoup plus de difficultés que les tableaux relatifs à l'état de la population, aux statistiques de l'état civil et à la plupart des questions de démographie. La raison de ces difficultés, c'est qu'il n'existe pas de définition uniforme et pratique du terme "migrant" employé par les divers pays dans les statistiques qu'ils fournissent. De même, le rassemblement de statistiques satisfaisantes touchant les migrants pose de nombreux problèmes pratiques.
