Immigration in Europe: Map of the percentages and countries of origin of immigrants
- To interpret the map (and the following maps) correctly, it is important to understand what immigrant (or foreign-born) means within the context of this study. A person is said to be foreign-born if they reside in a certain country but were not born within the current borders of that country. For example, a person living in Portugal born in Portuguese Angola before it became a sovereign nation would still count as a foreign-born individual, since he or she was not born within the borders of modern-day Portugal, even if that person had Portuguese citizenship since birth.
