iMMAP Facebook data for Venezuelan migration distribution - January 2019
The Venezuelan migratory phenomenon is of recent date, it began towards the middle of 2015, with the rupture of the institutionality in the neighboring country, and intensified towards the beginning of 2017.

This document presents a proposal for the distribution of the Venezuelan population looking for residence, which aims to satisfy the third question: Where are they?
