The Global Migration Map

Immigration is a major political issue in a number of countries. It often is during economic downturns or when income inequality is very high. A new map from the Pew Research Center allows you to check the number of immigrants in your country and the number of emigrants from your country. It also allows you to see where all those people are from and where they are moving to.

The Pew Research Center has mapped the Origins and Destinations of the World’s Migrants, 1990-2017. If you select a country on the map you can view the number of people living in the country who were born in other countries. You can also view the number of people born in the selected country who now live in other countries.

When you select a country on the map other countries are colored based on the number of immigrants that have come from that country. A table below the map also shows the total number of immigrants from different countries.
