Missing Migrants Project has been tracking deaths of migrants and those who have gone missing along migratory routes worldwide since the October 2013 tragedies, when at least 368 migrants died in two shipwrecks near the Italian island of Lampedusa. The Project is a source of up to date information for media, researchers, and the general public access. There is no other global tracking project similar to the Missing Migrants Project. Missing Migrants Project data are compiled from a variety of sources. Sources vary depending on the region and broadly include data from national authorities, such as Coast Guards and Medical Examiners; media reports; NGOs; and interviews with survivors of shipwrecks.

Missing Migrants Project draws on a range of sources to track deaths of migrants along migratory routes across the globe. Data from this project are published in the report “Fatal Journeys: Tracking Lives Lost during Migration,” which provides the most comprehensive global tally of migrant fatalities for 2014, and estimates deaths over the past 15 years.
