According to the latest data, ~280 million people or roughly 3.5% of the world’s population live as immigrants. This has increased by 61% since 2000, when roughly 174 million people lived as immigrants.

The United States, often termed as the land of immigrants, has the highest number of foreign born population – at 50.1 million. In one of my previous posts, I showed that many of these immigrants work in highly paid STEM occupations.

UAE has the highest proportion of immigrant population of all countries (Other Middle Eastern countries like Saudi Arabia, Qatar also tend to have a high proportion of immigrant population). Within Europe, Germany has the highest number of immigrants.
