Remittance Corridors

Here’s a first draft of an info-graphic I’ve been trying to get down for a while: how much it costs to send money from some parts of the world to others.

This chart is by no means complete, in fact one of the problems I’m currently facing is how to untangle the mess of arrows so that I can represent over 100 data points.

The world average for remittence prices is approximately 8.8% – though this varies widely. Also, I the World Bank seems to be off a decimal place in the 1st quarter % column. I’ll try to get them to fix that tomorrow.
