Where everyone in the world is migrating—in one gorgeous chart

Global_migration_datasheet_web-gimp3

In a study released in today’s Science, a team of geographers used data snapshots to create a broad analysis of global migrations over 20 years.  The study was conducted by three geographic researchers from the Wittgenstein Centre for Demography and Global Human Capital in Vienna. The researchers presented their data in five-year increments, from 1990 to 2010. Their research is unique, because it turned static census counts from over 150 countries into a dynamic flow of human traffic.  Click here for details and a link to the study.
