The United States has most immigrants for any country in the world, with 2015 figures of the United Nations showing that 46.6 million people staying there were not native Americans, according to the latest study conducted by Pew Research Centre, a Washington, D.C.-based non-aligned think tank for the US.
In fact, the study goes on state that the American immigrant population is almost fourfold of Germany, the second largest immigrant destination of the world, which accounts for nearly 12 million immigrants.
The study further states the world’s largest migration corridor is between the US and Mexico. Around 12 million people living in America were born in Mexico, says Pew citing UN Estimates of 2015. But of late, there has been a shift in trends as more Mexicans are heading back home from the US than those migrating to the world’s largest economy. The second largest corridor of immigrants is between India and the United Arab Emirates, with around 3.5 million migrants.
About 14 percent of people residing in America were born in foreign countries, which is lesser compared to Australia and Canada, whose percentages are 28 and 22, respectively.
The figures also show that Denmark and the UK have much more diversity in immigrants than the US. The score of immigration diversity in Denmark and the UK is, in fact, 97 in Denmark and the US as against 96 in Canada and 91 in the US.
