Mexico's population is 112 million. There are about 18 million first-generation Mexican immigrants (legal and illegal) in the US.

Where did you get your "half the country" figure?

I thought there were more like 40 million Americans of Mexican ancestry. But I guess if you're only taking into consideration 1 gen, it's way smaller. Anyways I'd have to say Lebanese and Puerto Ricans.

I think that some people are going by what heritage they have versus countries they could still be a citizen of.

Anyway, I would think that Guyana would be close to the top of highest percentage of people born there living elsewhere. There are more people who were born in Guyana that live in the US than there are in Guyana, and then there is Guyanese migration elsewhere.

Most of the Chinese living abroad have never been in China, have no claim to Chinese nationality, and are only Chinese by ancestry. If that counts, there are 100-million Germans and another 100-million British living in the USA alone, and maybe 200-million Spanish in Latin America.

But that doesn't count. I think the definition in the OP of nationality is people who during their lifetime, have owed allegiance to the particular country, and have personally emigrated.

I think on a per capita basis the country with most of its citizens living abroad are Irish.

After 1840, emigration became a massive, relentless, and efficiently managed national enterprise.[1] Counting those who went to Britain, between 9 and 10 million Irish people emigrated after 1700. The total flow was more than the population at its historical peak in the 1830s of 8.5 million. From 1830 to 1914, almost 5 million went to the United States alone. In 1890 two of every five Irish-born people were living abroad. By the 21st century, an estimated 80 million people worldwide claimed some Irish descent; which includes more than 36 million Americans who claim Irish as their primary ethnicity

Irish diaspora - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Of course it continues today as can be seen by the figures below.

Expressed as a percentage of the total population, almost 24% of people born in Ireland are
currently living in another OECD member country (see Chart 2). Other significant expatriate communities
include persons born in New Zealand (16%), Portugal (13.7%), Luxembourg (12.8%) and Mexico (9.9%).
