GeoFRED now offers an especially interesting data series from the World Bank: net migration. The UN’s Populations Division collects five-year samples of data on the difference between the level of immigrants and emigrants for 193 countries. In the map, the darker regions represent higher net migration.
For a parallel perspective, look at the map below, which shows per-capita GDP. Generally, higher per-capita GDP (darker areas on the map) also have higher levels of immigration. And vice versa.
GeoFRED has added new annual data on Per Capita Personal Income by County. This BEA data measure income received by all persons from all sources. Click here to explore.
Access to the internet in Thailand has grown year-over-year for 19 of the past 20 years. As of 2012, 26.5 percent of people in Thailand had access to the internet. This percentage is lower than the average rate for its ASEAN sister countries (Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Philippines, and Myanmar), which currently stands at 33.5 percent with continually positive annual growth.
GeoFRED has been refurbished and refreshed with a brand new interface and tons of international data. We have also introduced a homepage with links to blogs and lessons to help you get the most out of GeoFRED.
New GeoFRED is also very intuitive: Double-click to zoom in on the map and use the zoom bar in the upper right corner to zoom out. Hover over an area to learn more about it.
The upper right corner of the map offers a tools menu. Just click to expand it. From there, you can change the data and the presentation of the map.
When we expand GeoFRED’s international and U.S. regional data, we’ll announce it here. So check back often.
