Re: List of countries by immigrant population

The UN definition of "migrant" in the cited statistics is "a resident born in another country". Thus all naturalized citizens are migrants. And non-citizens are not migrants if they are born in the country of residence.

That is how the UN defines it. But the UN is consolidating statistics received from member countries. These countries may have another definition. Swiss statistics usually count the percentage of non-citizens. I doubt CH analyzes place of birth.
