False Implications of the Rate of Iranian Elite Immigration

When it comes to elite and educated immigration statistics, we need to consider skilled and educated immigrants and educational and student immigrants, with both groups being referred to as "skilled and educated immigrants”.


When it comes to elite and educated immigration statistics, we need to consider skilled and educated immigrants and educational and student immigrants, with both groups being referred to as "skilled and educated immigrants”.

According to the information center of national elites foundation quoted by technology and innovation analytical news headquarter, the countries of the world each seek to attract skilled and educated forces with different conditions and offerings; therefore, the competition is fierce.

Unfortunately, non-expert claims and lack of proper and scientific documentation have led to showing a false perspective on our country's immigration situation.

One of the claims says that “about 180,000 highly educated people emigrate from Iran annually”.

A key question now arises as to how this figure was obtained, and in what credible source the world and the official organization responsible for the issue were recorded and published. Is such statistic true? Do these claims have scientific documents?

According to the latest UNESCO statistics, there were 18,000 students out of Iran in 1998, which reached 50,000 in 2017. However, the highest number of students leaving Iran in 2016 was 52,307.

On the other hand, making this claim regardless of the number of students in the country over the years means that either these individuals are unprofessional or that there may be a sense of false intention in these cases.

Over the years (1998-2017), the number of students in the country has increased from about one million 300 thousand to about 4 million 350 thousand. Therefore, if you look at the ratio of emigrated students to the total student population in the country, this rate has not only increased but also seen a downward trend.

Based on the statistics of immigrants registered in OECD countries, 471,000 of the total population of 932,000 Iranian immigrants in the OECD were "skilled and educated" in 2010-2011. These statistics show that Iran does not have a high rate of emigration of "skilled and educated" people, as is the case in society.

Thus, in the years mentioned, Iran occupies the fourth position in the migration of "educated" people after India, the Philippines, and the United States.

It is notable that the list includes countries such as the US, Canada, South Korea, France, China, the United Kingdom, and Ukraine, some of which are among the most developed countries. Therefore, the issue of exclusion of skilled and educated people is not specific to Iran or other developing countries and is a common phenomenon in all countries of the world.
