Data Bulletin 1: Global Migration Trends

“Global Migration Trends” is the inaugural issue of the series Data Bulletin: Informing a Global Compact for Migration. It provides a brief overview of key global migration trends, based on available statistics and estimates from a variety of sources, to support informed decision-making throughout a global compact for migration process. The document summarizes key facts and figures on a range of migration-related topics, covering the period January 2015–December 2016, and citing more recent figures when available. Although this Data Bulletin is by no means exhaustive, it presents a broad picture of the state of migration around the world. A more detailed report on global migration trends will be published by IOM’s GMDAC in December 2017.
