Migration Could Triple Populations in Some Wealthy Nations

Migration Could Triple Populations in Some Wealthy Nations: "Gallup's Potential Net Migration Index finds Singapore, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, Canada, Switzerland, Australia, and Kuwait atop the list of countries that could see the highest net adult population growth from international migration."

Well, "highest net" is in %, not absolute numbers, since of course USA is the most popular country.

These maps present the data in another way. But it still isn't easy to take in what the numbers mean. For example, Sweden is in 8:th position in %, but even with 7 more million here it would still be a rather sparsely populated country. I've feeling 25 million more in for example Germany would have a larger impact.
