As part of their usual collaboration, GOOD and Column Five Media have put together this infographic that asked people where, if they could move permanently to another country, would they go.
From 2007 to 2010, Gallup posed this evocative question to people in 148 countries all over the world. To include an additional dimension, the responses of young people aged 15 to 29, as well as educated adults, were also tracked. Together, the conceivable gain in overall population tell a tale of how the wishful relocation of young and educated people could shape what the world would resemble as desire becomes reality.
Unsurprisingly, Canada was one of the top choices.
