Can you name a Westernized country that has a higher immigration rate than the USA?
Germany has a high immigration rate. East Europeans with any German forefathers are welcome. They receive government support to live and learn the language.
Germany, England for a few
The highest number, but not the highest percentage relative to the population.
Canada, Australia, Spain, Italy, Hong Kong, Luxembourg, Singapore.
Will have to check out those stats. Thanks
Nice data set!
That's why I asked about the term "rate". Total numbers, it's the U.S. But Canada absorbs more people relative to their pop. Same with Singapore.
What do you mean when using the term "rate" here?
Annual total new legal and illegal immigrants/# Current Legal citizens
So, total. Not as a function of the population?
The U.S. then.
If you want to compare number of migrants to the resident population, Singapore has us beat.
RJ: He said total immigrants / # legal citizens, that is a function of the population. Not U.S.
Most are surprised that the US immigration rate of new/current is below other countries. How about Illegal immigration?
