Between 2011 and 2012 the total inflow of persons to Norway decreased slightly to 78 600, although this still represented an immigration rate of almost 16 immigrants per 1 000 inhabitants. Of these, 89% were foreigners, and 45% were women. Most were from EU countries, although their share fell from 64% to 58%. Poland remained the largest origin country (11 500 new immigrants), followed by Lithuania (6 600) and Sweden (5 700). There was a significant increase in immigration from Somalia (3 600) and Eritrea (2 400). In 2012, 21 300 foreigners emigrated, 1 300 fewer than in 2011. The largest registered emigration flows in 2012 were to Sweden (6 700), Denmark (2 800) and Poland (1 400). Net immigration of foreigners rose slightly, to 48 700. The total inflow of migrants in 2013 was 3.5% below the 2012 level, at 75 800, largely because of a drop in the number of incoming EU nationals. Net migration, too, was about 15% below the 2011-12 levels.
