A New Interactive Research Tool From Our World in Data: Migration Data Explorer
Explore global data on immigration, refugees and asylum seekers.
Where do we source data on immigrant and emigrant stocks from?
Data on immigrant and emigrant stocks is sourced from the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA).
What is the difference between an immigrant and an emigrant?
Migrants have both an origin and a destination, meaning that international migrants can be viewed from two directions:
- Emigrant: someone leaving their country of birth (origin)
- Immigrant: someone moving to a country that they were not born in (destination)
