English term or phrase: lifetime data
High mobility is commonly offset by corresponding counter-flows but redistribution through internal migration is substantial in some countries, especially when computed as a lifetime measure. Time series comparisons show five-year migration intensities falling in most countries (China being a notable exception), although **lifetime data** show more widespread rises due to age-structure effects.

Thanks for your help!

data collected over a person's lifetime
Explanation:
Migration intensity falls in most countries over a five-year period, but if we look a person's activities over their lifetimes rather than just those five years, the intensity is higher.
