Lebanese Emigration in Numbers (World Bank Open Data – 2010 datasets)
The WorldBank did open its treasure chest of data and release it as Open Data and now there is a tumblr you can check for super fancy visualizations *drool*
Here is one of the visualizations that got my attention – it is on Global Human Migration…You know, us lebanese being so proud of our Diaspora – it is good to put a number on it (:

- Original datasets from the 2010 datasets is here
in other words we have 16% Emigration rates
since the vis makes it hard to see the numbers in the top 10 countries – here is one image as a shortcut to save the scrolling
I honestly have bits of doubts about the accuracy of the data – specially after taking a look at the numbers for Palestine: http://peoplemov.in/#f_PS … I mean lebanon should be in that top 10 list, no ?
yet those are such heartbreaking numbers – the number of Emigrant is 119% for palestine – i doubt there is a higher ratio.
