People moving

World Population: 6,853,328,460

Migrants in the world: 215,738,321

Almost 216 million people, or 3.15% of the world population, live outside their countries.

The site People Movin shows the cartography of global migration today. For example, new major destination countries are outside the historical global Northwest – Saudi Arabia is no.4, India is no.10., UAE is no.13. The major migration corridors are interesting too, with Bangladesh to India, India to the Emirates and China to Hong Kong being some of the biggest flows.
