Average annual flows above 1000 people by country of origin

Migration flows by country of origin are of growing interest in the Nordic Region due to the recent unprecedented in-flows of migrants.  There are also interesting differences between the Nordic countries with respect to the dominant countries of origin of migrants and the size of inflows.

The only major migrant inflows to the Faroe Islands and Greenland during the 1990s were from Denmark. No annual average migrant inflows to Iceland from a single country of origin exceeded 1000 people during the period.
