Total Remittance Inflows and Outflows, 1980 - Present
This map displays total remittance inflows and outflows by country since 1980. Remittance volume is displayed either by current U.S. dollar (USD) value or as a share of total Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Countries are colored according to whether they send more remittances than they receive (brown) or they receive more than they send (blue).
1) All numbers are in current (nominal) U.S. $. This means that dollar values are not constant between years, e.g. a 1980 dollar may have greater purchasing power than a 2022 dollar.
