These two maps show the percentage of foreign-born residents by country in Europe and by state in the United States.

In Europe, countries with the highest share of foreigners are Luxembourg (47%) and Switzerland (30%). They also happen to be the richest countries, so it's no surprise that they should attract foreign workers. The petrol-rich Gulf state countries have even higher percentages, with 88% of foreigners in the United Emirates, 79% in Qatar, 72% in Kuwait, 45% in Bahrain, and 38% in Saudi Arabia. In contrast very few foreigners want to live in war-torn Iraq, but also in Egypt and the Maghreb.

In the US, wealthy states are also magnet for foreigners. Those with the highest percentage of immigrants are California (27%), New York (23%), New Jersey (23%). In 4th position we find Florida (21%), although it is probably mostly Hispanic immigrants from the Caribbean. Unsurprisingly West Virginia and Mississipi, the two poorest states, have hardly any foreigners.
