Map No. 17

Richer territories tend to experience net immigration (greater immigration than emigration). Just under half of the 200 territories mapped currently experience net immigration. Those territories with net emigration (greater emigration than immigration) have size zero on this map.

Regions experiencing the highest net immigration are North America, Western Europe and the Middle East. Together these three regions account for 79.5% of world net immigration. The United States alone receives 37.1% of the world net total.

"And none will doubt but that our emigration has proved most useful to the British nation." Henry Carter, 1796

Territory size shows the relative levels of net immigration in all territories (immigration less emigration).
