Gallup Potential Net Migration Index

This index nets-out the people who want to emigrate to, as well as away from, a given country and divides that tally into the country’s total population, for a quick look at where people want (and don’t want) to be.

Despite its issues, looks like Singapore is the belle of the ball. I see the US tied with France for 13th place. (Behind Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Bahrain – what?!) Then there’s poor Hong Kong, so far below China…

Breakdown: Singapore’s population is 5 million. At 200% PNMI, it means that about 10 million (double the population) more people want to move to Singapore than move away.

Here’s where I got the below chart from.
