Supplementary notes
*regarding Latvia and Estonia, the share of third-country nationals, and thus the figures presented here, are remarkably high due to the "recognized non-citizens". recognized non-citzizens are mainly previous Soviet Union nationals who reside permanently in these two countries but do not possess neither Latvian or Estonian nationality, nor the nationality of any other country.

**Preliminary data.

***Estimate.

According to the source, no data were available for the EU member country Romania.Data for Latvia, Poland and the United Kingdom are provisional
