SERMIG Research and analyses

The following documents* are the result of analyses conducted by the Departamento de Estudios with data from SERMIG’s estimates of foreigners in Chile and administrative records regarding the demographic analysis of the 20 largest groups at national level; the demographic analysis by regions of Chile; and some communes.

The SERMIG administrative records considered include applications for and granting of the main immigration benefits: Residencia Temporal permits, Residencia Definitiva permits, and Cartas de Nacionalización. In the case of economic analysis, use is made of data from the National Employment Survey developed by the National Statistics Institute (INE), considering employment indicators of the foreign population in Chile. In addition, migration-related analyses developed from SERMIG’s own administrative records and those of other state institutions are incorporated.

* Spanish only.


Based on the Encuesta Nacional de Empleo (ENE), information is reported quarterly on the main indicators related to the labor participation of the foreign population residing in Chile.
