Educated Sub-Saharan Africans tend to migrate to the US rather than Europe – research 


According to a Pew Research Center analysis of 2015 U.S. Census Bureau and Eurostat data, educated Africans from Sub-Saharan choose US over European countries when migrating.

Immigrants over 25 years and above coming from Sub-Sahara countries based in the US were more educated (69%) than their counterparts in the UK(49%), France, Portugal, and Italy, the analysis showed. Therefore, they got better jobs in the US than sub-Sahara immigrants who moved to UK.

The research also stated that immigrants are usually more likely to be better educated than native born populations and, usually choose the European countries that originally colonized their native country when picking place to move to in Europe.
