700 Million Worldwide Desire to Migrate Permanently
If they could (according to a worldwide Galluip poll), about 700 million adults worldwide -- more than the entire adult population of North America and South America combined -- would like to move to another country permanently. The United States and Canada top the list of most desired destination countries.
If everyone who wanted to move to Canada actually did, the country's population would grow by 170%.
More information on this poll is available at the Gallup website.
