US Maps, Development-Induced Displacement, the Cook Islands, and the Philippines
Happy New Year and welcome back to the Migration Information Source. We begin 2004 by
mapping the top five foreign-born populations in the US by county. We're also kicking off the New Year with an examination of the emerging debate surrounding development-induced displacement. The Philippines and the Cook Islands add to our ongoing exploration of migration and development.
In this issue:
W. Courtland Robinson of Johns Hopkins University analyzes steps to minimize
development-induced displacement, which has uprooted millions worldwide.
MPI's Kevin O'Neil examines the
Philippines' sophisticated policies to promote and regulate its labor exports.
Paul Spoonley of Massey University explores the
that link the Cook Islands and New Zealand.
New Data Tool:
Six new maps reveal the distribution of immigrants by county in the US. We provide maps on the total foreign-born population and the five largest foreign-born groups, including Mexico, the Philippines, India, China, and Vietnam.
In our monthly Spotlight feature:
MPI Data Manager Elizabeth Grieco provides an overview of the
foreign born from China
living in the United States.
MPI's Maia Jachimowicz outlines the
affecting US migration policy, including the implementation of the US-VISIT program and new legalization discussions.
The Pew Hispanic Center discusses
"Remittance Senders and Receivers: Tracking the Transnational
Channels" in a new report.
The US Census Bureau looks at the
