Abstract: This publication is the final Deliverable of Work Package 6 ‘Mobility in the eEconomy’ of the STILE project. The project is funded under the ‘Information Society Technologies Programme’ of the European Commission. HIVA is the co-ordinator of this project. The other research partners are from Ireland, United Kingdom, Luxembourg, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Hungary and the United States.<br> This final report has sought to reveal determinants of the mobility of ICT workers, to detail the inflow and outflow of ICT workers mobility and to look at the effect gender, age and educational background have on the ICT jobs being created. It also determines flows within the ICT sector and between ICT and other branches by regrouping the economic destination sectors of ICT personnel into broad categories. Two principal sources have been used to do so: the Labour Force Survey and the Belgian Datawarehouse Labour Market of administrative data.<br><br> A quantitative assessment, however, needs to be accompanied by a more qualitative and methodological evaluation, an exercise that was illuminated by a detailed examination of the data from the two sources as it led to a number of additional insights and questions. As such D6.3 provides a methodological SWOT-analysis of both the (EU) LFS and the Belgian Datawarehouse and compares the data of both sources in order to make recommendations on a better measurement of mobility in the (EU) LFS.<br>
