Each year, thousands of people perish or go missing while trying to migrate to another country, many as refugees or asylum-seekers. The Missing Migrants Project, an effort that began in 2013 by the International Organization for Migration (IOM), "tracks deaths of migrants, including refugees and asylum-seekers, who have gone missing along mixed migration routes worldwide." Here, readers will find the "Latest Global Figures" for migrant deaths as well as detailed breakdowns by regions, with annual and monthly data available going back to 2014. The Migration Flows Europe section leads to an interactive map visualizing the population flows of migrants in Europe. The downloads tab allows readers to download the project's datasets as Excel or CSV files (with IOM's methodology available under the about tab), as well as reports, data briefs, infographics, and other publications. Geographers, social scientists, and concerned readers will likely find the Missing Migrants Project to be informative and illuminating.
