Do the migrated questions from other SE sites get counted in, or have effect on, the site's accept rate?

What do you mean by accept rate? Do you mean your accept rate like this or are you talking about answer percentage like here –  Some Helpful Commenter Jun 8 '12 at 19:42
I meant like the first example you have referred to. –  Future2020 Jun 8 '12 at 19:46

According to the blog, closed questions don't count for accept rate. Since migrated questions are closed, they won't count either.

To demonstrate that migrated questions are closed, you can use a search with closed:1. You'll see that migrated questions turn up. For example: http://stackoverflow.com/search?q=Is+this+streamable+combination+of+encryption+and+MAC+secure%3F+closed%3A1

I am not sure. The questions are pointed as [migrated] and not [closed]. I did not find any reference in the blog to the migrated questions. –  Future2020 Jun 8 '12 at 19:44
@Future2020 That's only a cosmetic title change. The system edits the title when a question gets closed. Originally it said [Closed] even for migrated question. But a migrated question is still closed. –  CodesInChaos Jun 8 '12 at 19:46
@Future2020: A migrated question is technically closed as "off topic" on the original site and migrated. –  animuson Jun 8 '12 at 19:50
Even if they wouldn't count as closed(I'm pretty sure they do), migrated questions get automatically deleted after a few weeks. –  CodesInChaos Jun 8 '12 at 19:53
@CodeInChaos: hmmm, i am still seeing a migrated question which is not yet deleted as you suggest even after "few" weeks. I am still wondering if there is a more informing and decisive answer to this :) –  Future2020 Jun 8 '12 at 19:57
