Abstract

Global immigration can be affected by multiple factors, including standards of living in both the origin and the destination country, job opportunities, poverty, and access to healthcare, to name just a few. Using panel data from over 100 countries GDP and international Migrant stock from the years 1990, 1995, 2000, 2005, 2010, 2015, and 2019, we examine empirically how immigration can affect economic (GDP) growth while also looking at how economic growth can affect global immigration. In our regression models, we control for unemployment, levels of political violence, percentage of population that with secondary education, and percentage of the population that have completed post-secondary education.
