Over 80% of Iraqis and Afghans live in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Not about Sudanese and South Sudanese but i think most of them still live in Sudan and South Sudan.

It's a good thing. Their average IQ is 110, neutralizing the rest of us, who are being dumbed down at an alarming rate.

That's ten points higher than MY race, and I consider that a wake-up call, not an insult that requires politically correct tinkering.

About 10% of all people with Mexican citizenship and nationality live outside Mexico. That does not include people born in Mexico ("Mexican-Americans") who have American citizenship. The total number is probably around 12-million, which probably exceeds the number for any other nationality in the world. Although it is possible that the number of Philipplinos may be similar, and Indians is also very high, mostly in the Middle East and Africa.

India claims a population of 25-million who are living in other countries, but liable to India tax law. China claims a number of 50-million, but that includes everyone who self-reports as having Chinese ancestry, and a great majority of those have never been in China nor has any ancestor for several generations.

if the OP meant absolute numbers and not % of home population, then i would say the chinese.
- singapore: 2.8 million
- malaysia: 7 million
- indonesia: 9 million
- thailand: 10 million or 26 million, if including mixed descent
- taiwan: 23 million
- Philippines: 23 million, including mixed descent
- u.s.: 3.8 million

If you are counting all those, you must also count me for Lithuania, England, Ireland and Poland, which is where my ancestors came from between 1710 and 1910. But I demur, and disavow any of those nationalities. Just as most of the Chinese in your count will quickly disavow any "Chinese nationality" in favor of their country of birth and/or present citizenship.

i was following bimbam's post "That's because most of the immigrants who left Ireland for America left the Ireland of 150 years ago rather than of 2013. Back then Irish did eat lots of potatoes. With so many Irish decended Australians, Canadians, Americans, New Zealanders, and even Carribeans and with only 4 million people in Ireland, it's a fair assertion."

going by your reasoning, most of the irish in his count will quickly disavow any "irish nationality" in favor of their country of birth and/or present citizenship.

Well most of the worlds refugees are from Afganistan and Iraq.

One in four of the world's refugees was from Afghanistan (2.9 million). Afghans were located in 71 different asylum countries.
Iraqis were the second largest refugee group, with 1.8 million having sought refuge primarily in neighbouring countries.
Somalis constituted the third largest group with 678,888 persons, while Congo DRC was the fourth-largest country of origin with 456,000 refugeesAt-a-glance: Who takes the most asylum claims? | SBS World News

Yet that article was dated in 2011. Many Iraqi refugees that lived in Syria have returned back to Iraq since the Syrian civil war. Yet many Iraqis are now fleeing to Jordan and other safer countries now.

But only a small fraction of all people living "abroad" are classified as refugees. California alone has over 10-million people who were born outside the USA, which is equal to all the refugees in the world, but there are less than 300,000 refugees in the whole USA.

Refugee statistics are highly misleading. Of the UN claim of 42-million refugees, 2/3 of those are "internally displaced people" who now qualify as refugees undr new definitions, but remain inside their home country. Every commentator on the subject is prone to inflating the numbers.
