Foto Lector de texto National Immigrant Survey 2007 is aimed at studying the demographic and social characteristics of those persons born abroad, as well as their migratory itineraries, work and residential history, family relations and relations with their country of origin and with the Spanish society. NIS-2007 places a special emphasis on the study of social relations and personal networks linked to the act of migrating. The survey has a general purpose and a very broad subject matter, and is the first large survey on the recent migratory flows, covering the entire national territory and all immigrant groups.

NIS-2007 calls its subject population 'immigrants': those persons born abroad, aged 16 and over, and residing in family dwellings in Spain at the time of the Survey.
