Languages of publication
The article is devoted to the opportunities and the constraints of the quantitative approach in studying migrant integration in Poland. It is argued that taking into account the specific character of the inflow of foreigners to Poland, the small number of migrants and temporariness of mobility, some special methodological solutions are needed, regarding mainly the sampling procedures. At the same time, it is claimed that the representativeness of the results should be targeted. Taking into account the existing limitations, the article recommends first of all quantitative studies of selected groups of migrants and areas where they are present. The methodological reflections demonstrated in the article are based on two quantitative research projects conducted by the Centre of Migration Research, University of Warsaw.
