Abstract: The focus of this report is to explore the link between demographic and education indicators and emigration at a global level. The relationship between demographic pressure and migration has been previously explored and findings have shown that population bulges may lead to increased emigration. Nevertheless, this study approaches the research question by challenging previous findings and discussing the interactions between economic growth and demographic pressure. In particular, findings show that demographic transition may or may not affect emigration patterns depending not only on the level of economic development of the country but also the rate of economic growth and the various other aspects of human development.
