Population geography uses stats and data to answer questions about migration patterns and the factors causing migration. Because of the Yemeni Crisis, Yemen migration is at a pivotal stage as millions flee the terrorism and civil war. Using stats and data from Able 2014, Gapminder, and the International Organization of Migration (IOM), Yemen migration patterns were compared to before and after the crisis began. What the data shows is that migration increased to the northwest of the country and to the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The data also shows migrants returning to East Africa. This shows that the increase in migration to northwest Yemen, the UAE and East Africa parallels the Yemeni Crisis.
