|Home Statistics 4. Stocks Next Page (5. Remittances)|
Stocks are the total number of immigrants the result of years of migrant flows.
Data on stocks usually come from population registers but also from censuses and other sources. European countries tend to keep more data on foreign citizens, while the traditional countries of settlement are more concerned with counting the foreign born.
For the latest UN Estimates on global stocks consult the UN Population Division website.
