This research examines the key questions of "who migrates internationally and where do they go?" It resents a range of statistical data and draws upon the existing body of research on migration determinants and decision-making. Employing a novel analytical model drawing upon international migrant stock data and human development index data from 1995 to 2020, the research shows that some aspects of macroeconmic analyses are confirmed but, contrary to existing knowlegde, there are differences in long-term migration patterns.

Marie McAuliffe is the head of Migration Research and editor of the World Migration Report at IOM in Geneva, and a visitor at the ANU School of Demography.
