The Global Flow of People
Explore new estimates of global migration flows between and within regions for five-year periods, 1990 to 2010. Click on a region to discover flows country-by-country.
The new estimates developed by Guy Abel and Nikola Sander quantify bilateral international migration flows based on migration stock data from the United Nations. In order to communicate the new dataset, researchers from the Wittgenstein Centre for Demography and Global Human Capital (Vienna) together with coders from Null2 (Berlin) jointly developed an interactive data visualisation that illustrates the global flow of people (for more information, see: www.global-migration.info).
