On 1 January 2013, there were 3.54 million residents in the Netherlands with at least one foreign-born parent (non-native background). By 1 January 2014, this number had risen to 3.59 million or 21.4% of the Dutch population. The main non-native backgrounds were Turkey (396 000 on 1 January 2014), Morocco (375 000) Indonesia (372 000), Germany (369 000), and Surinam (348 000). Since 1996 the number of those with non-native background has increased by 44%, while the rest of the population increased by 1.8%. Most of the increase was due to growing flows from Central and Eastern European and from non-Western – particularly Asian – countries. Most residents with non-native background are Dutch nationals.
