Project Description

People are living in a convoluted world. There are numerous things going on in peoples lives. As individuals, people are interacting with each other in their daily lives. Even though, the world is not just about their micro-scale world such as school,work,family, friends etc.There are an excess of situations going on in the world. At some point, people can not ignore what is going on all around the world. Plenty of things such as poverty, war, hunger, exertion etc. can effect people’s lives in a harmful way and they may need to “escape” from where they live. In these circumstances, other people who are not facing problems like this should care about the ones having trouble and welcome them. Many people are forcing to leave their countries and start a whole new life in another one. As a conclusion of this; their lives are changing, one culture meeting with another, socioeconomic circumstances are changing in both countries etc. Project goal is focusing on this migration situation around the world.

Actions Taken

There are 3 excel file of the dataset. These are dataset of migrant destionation, dataset of migrant origin and dataset of migrant age. In excel files, there are numerous sheets of tables. From the origin dataset, total migration numbers (Table 1) and female rate of migrants (Table 2) are imported. From the destination dataset, total migration numbers (Table 1) , migrants rate to population (Table 3), female rate of migrants (Table 4), refugee numbers and rates (Table 6) are imported. In the last dataset, only age statistics (Table 7) is imported. Through the information that provided by datasets, tables are reshaped by development groups and regions. Besides these classifications, world and Turkey subdatas are created due to make a comparison. With the help of ggplot and tables, numerous bar graphs and maps are generated.


There are various problems occured while the processes of mapping because of methodology of the dataset.
