Migration to OECD countries highest in 2015 for the decade.

EMAIL  Print A+

During the year 2015, nearly 4.8 million people immigrated permanently to the member nations of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). The number of people who migrated permanently during the year 2014 was 4.3 million. Out of the total, nearly 9% were refugees. This is by far the maximum number of immigrants in a year visiting the OECD countries since 2006. 

As per the OECD report released recently, during the years 2006 to 2014, average permanent immigrant influx annually to the OECD countries was increased by 0.53 percent, whereas the reimbursement outflow has risen by 3.7 percent. 

As per to a Professor at Zakir Husain Centre for Education in Jawaharlal Nehru University, Binod Khadria, “one major reason behind the rapid increase in the migration levels could be the  decrease in the working age population in these countries, resulting into the hike in the demand for foreign workers.
Another reason for this could be that migrants who migrated to the OECD nations earlier have got the permanent residency status by 2015. 

The nations which witnessed the maximum number of migrants were the USA, Germany, the UK, Canada and France.
