Q. Where can I find information and data on remittances?

  Sep 19, 2016

Start with the Migration and Remittances page from World Bank. It provides detailed data including bilateral flows for many nations.

Go to Business Databases: A-Z and click on the Economist Intelligence Unit (use the Advanced search) to search for remittance information for certain countries. Click on EconLit to search for articles on this topic. Another option would be to try OECD iLibrary.

For background information on remittances from the United States, see the Migration Information Source.

Also see the Global Remittances Guide from the Migration Policy Institute.

To find books on this topic, search under the subject "emigrant remittances" or "balance of payments" in BU Libraries Search.
