Migration Policy Institute Launches Redesign of its Website, Offers Wider Range of User-Friendly Data Visualizations and Improved Navigation

WASHINGTON — The Migration Policy Institute (MPI) today announced the launch of a completely redesigned website for MPI and its online journal, the Migration Information Source. The new website provides a significantly more user-friendly experience with improved navigation, richer visualization of data offerings and the ability to find research, multimedia content and articles by topic, region and other criteria.

“This sophisticated redesign will give our vast and continuously expanding audience easier, more intuitive access to our many research offerings, videos, podcasts and Source articles,” said MPI President Demetrios G. Papademetriou.

The website, www.migrationpolicy.org, offers a clean, contemporary design with powerful search capabilities, as well a new section for commentaries written by MPI and MPI Europe policy analysts. Users will be able to select MPI and Migration Information Source resources by topic, region, content type, analyst and program activity.

“This carefully thought-out redesign reflects feedback from MPI and Migration Information Source users, and allows our users to access content in ways that suit them best, whether by computer, tablet or smartphone,” said MPI CEO Michael Fix.

The website includes a revamped MPI Data Hub that offers a wealth of international and U.S. data, charts and maps. The Data Hub provides current and historical data on immigrant populations by size, origin, place of residence, educational attainment, language proficiencies and workforce participation; as well as trends in remittance flows, emigration and more.

Feedback is welcome, and should be directed to [email protected].
