Note Only 40 percent of the highest migrant movements (more than 2574 migrants, respective the 3rd quintile of the rank-ordered distribution in the European network in year 2010) are depicted. The thickness of arrows is proportional to the number of migrants who went from the country where the arrow starts to the country where the arrow ends. The size of country nodes is proportional to the sum of all the immigrants and emigrants in the country. The size of arrows and nodes is directly comparable across the years. The community detection algorithm used is based on modularities (with a 1.5 resolution factor). Different colors represent different network components extracted by this analysis.
