Note: Due to the notable difference in migration figures for Finland and Denmark compared to Norway and Sweden, different scales have been used for the two sets of countries, in order to optimise how each country is visually represented in the map. This may result in slight fluctuations in bubble size when comparing two or more countries.
Note: US Census data unavailable for 1890 and 1930.
