The estimates in this interactive feature refer to the total number (or cumulative “stocks”) of migrants living around the world in each year (1990, 2000, 2010 and 2013) rather than to the annual rate of migration (or current “flows”). Since migrants have both an origin and a destination, international migrants can be viewed from two directions—as an emigrant (leaving an origin country) or as an immigrant (entering a destination country).

Large numbers are rounded to the nearest 10,000. Estimates between 1,000 and 9,999 are shown as < 10,000. Estimates between 0 and 999 are shown as < 1,000. All percentages are rounded to the nearest whole number. Ties are listed in numeric order. Data are from the United Nations Population Division’s bilateral matrix of migrant stocks. For a more detailed explanation of estimates, see the report’s methodology in Appendix A.

Percent immigrant/emigrant estimates include only countries with a total population of 1 million or more in 2010. Percent immigrant/emigrant estimates do not include the Palestinian territories since descendants are included in U.N. estimates and do not always reflect a foreign-born definition.

According to the United Nations Population Division, an international migrant is someone who has been living for one year or longer in a country other than the one in which he or she was born. This means that many foreign workers and international students are counted as migrants. Additionally, the U.N. considers refugees and, in some cases, their descendants to be international migrants. For the purposes of this report, estimates of the number of unauthorized or illegal immigrants living in various countries also are included in the total counts. However, tourists, foreign aid workers, temporary workers employed abroad for less than a year and overseas military personnel are typically not counted as migrants

U.S. territories (such as Puerto Rico) are part of the United States and those born in U.S. territories are U.S. citizens by birth. Migrants from U.S. territories living in the U.S. are not classified as international migrants in foreign-born population estimates published by the U.S. Census Bureau or the Pew Research Center’s Hispanic Trends Project. However, this report uses international migrant data published by the U.N., which classifies migrants born in U.S. territories such as Puerto Rico, Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands and who are living in the U.S. as international migrants. Similarly, U.N. international migrant data consider people born in one of the 50 U.S. states but living in a U.S. territory as international migrants. Also, the U.N.’s migration data released in September 2013 included updates to previous years. As a result, migrant estimates in this report differ from estimates in other reports on international migration published by the U.S. Census Bureau and the Pew Research Center.
