In 2009, the total inflow of immigrants to Norway reached 65 200, almost as high as the record level of 66 900 in 2008. Out of these, 87% were foreigners and 13% of Norwegian nationality. The decrease of the immigration flow in 2009 was mainly due to less immigration from Poland by 38%, to 10 450 immigrants in 2009. However, Poles still constitute the largest immigrant group, followed by Swedes. Overall, 58% of immigrants came from EU member states, and 31% from the new members in Central and Eastern Europe.
