Supplementary notes

Regional figures were collected and calculated by Statista.

The source adds the following information:

  • No numbers are available for Venezuela;
  • Due to political and economic situations, the flows between certain countries was considered to be 0 (zero). These countries included: India and Pakistan (and vice versa), Lebanon and Israel (and vice versa), and Azerbaijan and Armenia (and vice versa);
  • The source emphasizes several times that the numbers provided are estimates, as the data suffers from several issues. These relate to, for example, the frequency of migrant data updating per country, the lack of data on informal money transfers or the possibility of retirees moving abroad but then withdrawing savings from their country of origin.
