Migration by Employment Status

It should come as no surprise to anyone that people who are employed full time generally have less desire to permanently migrate to another country than people who are only employed part-time or not employed. That's why one part of the recent Gallup report is surprising: employed Africans in most regions are about as likely to want to migrate as under-employed, as are employed people in developing Asian nations (mostly India and China whence few people express an interest in leaving).

In other areas, by comparison, the under-employed are about 50% more likely to respond that they want to migrate (eg - 10% vs 15%).
