Europe launches online Migration Atlas



On the occasion of International Migrant’s Day last month, the European Commission launched an online, international ‘Migration’ Atlas with data for 198 countries and territories worldwide.

The initiative will give citizens an in-depth account of trends, statistics, demographics and more relating to migration around the world.

The Atlas of Migration is open to the public and 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.

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

  • residence permits;
  • visas (only for the Schengen area of free movement);
  • naturalisation;
  • integration;
  • asylum applications and outcomes.
