Women Account for Almost Half of All International Migrants
Migration is the movement of people, either within a country or across international borders. It includes all kinds of movements, irrespective of the drivers, duration and voluntary/involuntary nature. It encompasses economic migrants, distress migrants, internally displaced persons (IDPs,) refugees and asylum seekers, returnees and people moving for other purposes, including for education and family reunification. In 2015, there were 244 million international migrants, representing an increase of 40% since 2000. About one-third of all international migrants are aged 15–34.
