International Migrant Population by Country of Origin and Destination

Based on estimates from the UN Population Division, this map shows the immigrant and emigrant populations by country of origin and destination. Select a country from the drop down menu. If 'immigrants' is used as the population indicator, population bubbles will display over countries of origin for the immigrant population based on estimated population size. If 'emigrants' is selected, then the population bubbles will appear over countries of destination for the emigrant population, sized according to the estimated emigrant population in each country.
