Which countries have the highest migrant percentages worldwide?

Follow up:

FiveThirtyEight put an interesting list together using United Nations data showing that 3.2 percent of the world's population live in a country other than the one in which they were born. When protectorates and unincorporated territories like the Falkland Islands and Macau are excluded from the list, the top 10 is led by the Vatican City. Nobody is born in the Holy See, making it the state with the highest migrant percentage worldwide.

This chart shows the countries with the highest migrant percentages worldwide in 2013.
