Population of the Netherlands in 2018, by background

Population of the Netherlands in 2018, by background This statistic shows the population of the Netherlands in 2018, by background. Of the nearly 17.2 million people living in the Netherlands in 2018, roughly 13.2 million people had a Dutch background and four million people had a migration background, defined as first or second generation migrants. Of the non-Western population, the majority of the inhabitants had a Turkish background, as can be seen in this statistic on the background of the non-Western population in the Netherlands. The second-largest group is formed by the population with a Moroccan background. These groups consist of respectively roughly 404,000 and 397,000 people. According to a recent forecast, both the population with a Western background and the population with a non-Western background is likely to increase in the future. It is estimated that by 2060, approximately three million people in the Netherlands will have a non-Western background.
