Celebrating the International Migrants’ Day with a new Atlas of Migration

This International Migrants’ Day, the Knowledge Centre on Migration and Demography launches an online, interactive atlas with the latest migration data for 198 countries and territories worldwide.

The Atlas of Migration is an online guide through complexities of data about migration and demography that will help citizens to understand the facts behind migration as well as provide the policymakers with the best evidence.

Open to the public, the interactive platform allows users to create and download profiles for the countries or territories they are interested in.

Because the data is updated every 24 hours, users can be confident that they are accessing the most up-to-date information available.

The information is made available by bringing together harmonised, validated data from 12 international sources.

The Atlas provides information on 60 different indicators related to migration, asylum, integration, demography, and development.

Understanding migration

On top of migration and demography indicators, for all EU Member States the Atlas provides information on:

  • asylum applications and outcomes;
  • residence permits;
  • Schengen Visas;
  • naturalisation;
  • integration.
