Pew: 7 Facts about World Migration

Check out this article from Pew Research:

7 Facts about World Migration

Here are two that I found particularly interesting:

What country has the most diverse, multi-cultural migrant population?

The United Kingdom

What nationality has the most destination diversity (that means that the emigrants from this country tend to spread out and have the largest global presence).

The French

Pew says:
"The French like to live all over the world – emigrants from France live in more countries than emigrants from any other nation. Using the Herfindahl index, the destination diversity of emigrants born in France is 95 on a 0 to 100 scale. It is 89 for American-born people living outside of the U.S. There are at least 1,000 French-born people living in each of 83 different countries and territories; the most popular destinations are Spain (220,000) and the United States (180,000)."
Fancy that. :-)

Hi - I'm visiting Paris the end of September for vacation, taking ten days. Might it be possible to meet for coffee and some conversation? I've followed your blog for a while, and living here in Seattle (but not a native of Seattle), I could share news and changes.

I liked the Pew 7 Facts article. I have passed it on to others, especially my UK son.

@Larry! Absolutely. I'm around. Just send a note via email v_ferauge@yahoo.com

@Oliviadog, Thank you! *I* never know what people are thinking when they read my blog (are they thinking I'm a nutty old lady? :-) so thank you so much for the feedback.

@Northerndar, The part about the French was really surprising to me and to some folks who commented on FB. Good stuff to know....
