How is Net Migrations calculated?

The difference between immigrants and emigrants makes up the net migrations of a country. If the net migration numbers for the year are positive and indicated above with green coloring. Then more people immigrated than emigrated to Estonia for that year, equal to the number displayed.

Estonia will see a decrease of net migrations by the year 2100.
