This map shows the proportion of the world's international emigrants coming from each territory. This map indicates that the worldwide spread of origins is not dominated by any single region. Nevertheless variations exist. Regional averages for the percentage of the population that emigrate range from one percent of the population in Southern Asia, Eastern Asia and Japan, to eight percent in Eastern Europe and nine percent in the Middle East.

"I was determined to reach Europe or die trying. After everything I had gone through, I didn't care any more… " Mamadou Saliou 'Billy' Diallo, 2005

Territory size shows the number of international emigrants originating there.
