The Many Faces of Global Migration

image of Gallup World Poll

The Many Faces of Global Migration report is an introduction to what Gallup has unearthed by asking migrants and potential migrants worldwide about their lives. The data presented in this report are based on Gallup’s ongoing World Poll surveys in more than 150 countries, territories and regions and more than 750,000 interviews since 2005. As such, these findings provide an unprecedented look at the different push-and-pull factors that influence migration, the experiences of those who desire to migrate to other countries permanently or temporarily for work, those who are planning to go, those who are preparing to go, those who have already left, and those who have returned home – and what this means for governments, intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations, and other stakeholders.

Personal gains and losses from migration

The migrant experience involves gains and losses. Regardless of the reasons why individuals leave their countries of origin – be it political, economic or other reasons – the quest for a better life in a foreign land may also mean losses in other personal ways. Such losses can translate into negative emotional experiences and a sense of isolation as individuals miss friends or feel nostalgia for their old ways of life.
