This is a list of countries by immigrant population.[clarification needed] Foreign-born population is not the same as immigrant population, as there are births of citizens abroad who work or travel overseas, as well as non-immigrants who reside in a country temporarily for work or other reasons.[citation needed]

As of 2013, the United States has the largest population of migrants of any country. China has the world's lowest population of migrants as a percentage of its population.
