The foreign-born population accounts for one-quarter of residents in Israel, although migration flows have been relatively low in the past decade and this proportion is declining. In 2011, there were 16 900 new permanent immigrants to Israel, an increase of 2% over 2010 and a rate of two immigrants per thousand residents. Preliminary figures for 2012 indicate that permanent immigration to Israel rose to 18 000 entries. The main countries from which immigrants arrived in 2011 were the former Soviet Union (43%, primarily from the Russian Federation and Ukraine), the United States and Ethiopia, with a share of about 17% each, and France (10%).
