Fascinating Emigration Graphic

at there is a cool interactive graphic that shows the movement of emigrants between countries.


  1. I agree that the graphic is fascinating. You wonder about the stories behind the migration. I noticed that notwithstanding immigration policy, the United States is the primary destination of Migrants. India's primary destination is United Arab Emirates. I wonder if those are disaffected Muslims. Palestine shows an immigration of more than 75%. That tells me that there are very few natives left. It is interesting to note that some of the destinations for Palestinians are some pretty extreme countries. ie Yemen and Libya among others. Gary, great find.

  2. I was surprised to learn that the biggest country of origin for people emigrating to Mexico is the US. I thought it would be south american countries.
