The Max-Planck-Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity (MPI-MMG) has launched an innovative set of online, interactive tools that allow users to choose, to examine country by country, to graphically visualize and to compare the latest and most comprehensive global migration data existing from 1960 to 2000 (with 2010 updates forthcoming)

With stunning new graphics, the data visualizers are for: global migration flow data from the United Nations Population Division; global migrant stock data compiled together with the World Bank; and, also based on the latter dataset, migrants by destination – that is, the number of people from any particular country found, at any particular time, in all other countries across the world. Where the national data allows, moreover, within each visualizer online users can choose to examine migration data by citizenship or place of birth as well as by gender.

To see and use these new graphic tools, please go to the MPI-MMG homepage (www.mmg.mpg.de) and click on the heading ‘data visualization’. Each global migration data visualizer has a set of instructions and an online instruction video. A ‘feedback’ tab is also supplied for comments, questions and user examples. An FAQ section will be continuously updated and the visualization tools will be upgraded accordingly.
