The Wittgenstein Centre for Demography and Global Human Capital has created an interactive visualization of major migration patterns occurring from 1990-2010. The team behind the visualization used statistical missing data methods to approximate the true number of migrants, which is often difficult to identify due to illegal migration or varying recording and enforcement standards from country to country. The visualization allows users to discover migration patterns in different parts of the world that may not have been previously well understood.
