Factors Contributing to Migration: Demographic changes

Global population growth differs between developed and developing countries. In the developed countries, the current annual rate of growth is less than 0.3 percent, while in the rest of the world the population is increasing almost six times as fast. Demographic changes affect international migration in two ways. On the one hand, rapid population growth combined with economic difficulties push people to move out of their habitat, and on the other hand, a declining and ageing population pressures countries to accept migrants.
