Data Mining: Top 20 Countries Where Professionals Are Moving For Work Based on LinkedIn Data
Results of some LinkedIn data mining follows below.
From the LinkedIn Blog:
We determined the top 20 countries that saw the most migration activity (the absolute number of members moving in and out of a country) and ranked them by their net migration (the number of members arriving to a country minus the number of member departing a country) as a percentage of country membership. The results tell us which countries in 2014 had the most professional migrants in 2014 and the general direction in which they moved – potential indications of economic performance through 2015.
The United Arab Emirates and India bookend our results in net gains and losses respectively and are in fact very closely linked. India was the top country of origin among members who moved to the United Arab Emirates in 2014. Let’s take a closer look at industries, occupations, and regions involved in the migration trends for these two countries.
