Migration Data Portal



MigrationThe Migration Data Portal provides global statistics on immigration and emigration; migrant flow; vulnerability; integration and well-being; forced migration; development; migration policy and public opinion. Data, from 1990 to present, can be filtered by country, sub-region and region. The Portal, which is maintained by the Global Migration Data Analysis Centre, International Organisation for Migration (Berlin), provides:

  • Migration statistics
  • Data on categories of migration; migration and development; migration policy
  • Tools and guidelines for the use and harmonisation of migration data
  • Migration dimensions of the Sustainable Development Goals
  • Key migration statistics by country, region and sub-region
  • Migration Governance Profiles.

IOM published an overview of the development of the portal in September 2019.
