This time series chart shows annual remittance inflows and outflows by country from 1980 to present (either in current U.S. dollars or as a share of total gross domestic product, GDP). Multiple countries can be selected from the menu.
1) All numbers are in current (nominal) U.S. $. This means that dollar values are not constant between years, e.g. a 1980 dollar may have greater purchasing power than a 2020 dollar.
2) Remittance inflows and outflows for 2020 are based on World Bank preliminary estimates.
