Global bilateral migration database 1960-2000

Thanks to the collection and extension of over 1,000 censuses and population registers, the authors have constructed global origin-destination matrices of bilateral migrant flows for 226 countries/regions at 10 year intervals over the period 1960-2000.

The empirical analysis of migration flows suffers from a lack of reliable data. Thanks to the collection and extension of over 1,000 censuses and population registers, the authors have constructed global origin-destination matrices of bilateral migrant flows for 226 countries/regions at 10 year intervals over the period 1960-2000. These data reveal an increase in global migrant stock from 92 to 165 million between 1960 and 2000, a dominance of South-South migration, while the US remains the most important migration destination in the world, and that the proportion of women in global migration has increased.
