Global Transnational Mobility Dataset

The Global Transnational Mobility Dataset provides estimates of country-to-country cross-border human travels on the basis of worldwide statistics on tourism and air passenger traffic. The two sources are adjusted and merged, resulting into a set of data that covers more than 15 billion estimated travels over the years 2011 to 2016.
