Use our interactive maps to learn about international migration, including immigrant and emigrant populations by country and trends in global migration since 1960. One of these maps was referred to by a news organization as "addictive" and "a font of fun facts."

Remittances are among the most tangible links between migration and development. According to World Bank projections, international migrants are expected to remit more than $550 billion in earnings in 2013, of which $414 billion will flow to developing countries. In 24 countries, remittances were equal to more than 10 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) in 2011; in nine countries they were equal to more than 20 percent of GDP.

Review U.S. Census data on immigrants and the native born based on demographics (population and country of birth, age, Hispanic origin, children/ families); language and education (English proficiency and educational attainment, languages spoken at home); workforce (immigrants' share of workers, top occupations and industries, skill underutilization of the college educated); and income (average incomes, poverty rates).

These interactive charts visualize changing immigration patterns and characteristics of the immigrant population in the United States over time. Topics covered include: Legal Immigration Flows, Naturalization Trends, Immigrants' Countries and Regions of Birth; Diaspora Groups in the United States; Children in Immigrant Families; Immigrants in the U.S. Labor Force; Limited English Proficient (LEP) Population; and Age and Gender Distribution of Immigrants.
