The number of migrants has risen rapidly in the past few years for various reasons: job opportunities, labor shortages resulting from falling birth rates, internal conflict and war, natural disasters, climate change, and improved access to information through phone and the Internet. The Migration and Remittances Factbook 2016 presents numbers and facts behind the stories of international migration and remittances, drawing on authoritative, publicly available data. It updates the 2011 edition with additional data on bilateral migration and remittances and second generation diasporas, collected from various sources, including national censuses, labor force surveys, population registers, and other national sources. - provides a comprehensive picture of emigration, immigration, and remittance flows for 214 countries and territories and 15 regional and income groups - provides selected socioeconomic characteristics such as population, labor force, age-dependency ratio, gross national income per capita, and poverty headcount More frequent and timely monitoring of migration and remittance trends can provide policy makers, researchers, and the development community with the tools needed to make informed decisions. The Factbook makes an important contribution to this effort by providing the latest available data and facts on migration and remittance trends worldwide in a comprehensive and readily accessible format.
