Sorted by?[edit]

Hi - it isn't actually clear how this is sorted. The link is to Country of birth of parents but that figure isn't usually used in the articles. We are quite good at quoting country of birth and ancestry statistics. My preferences is for country of birth to drive the ranking. --Matilda talk 07:31, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

I made all the bolded ancestries in number order, but the other ones are just random i think. They are by ancestry if you guessed, and aboriginals at the top for obvious reasons. PMK1 (talk) 13:19, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Now sorted by ancestry reposnses in 20680-Ancestry by Country of Birth of Parents per link in template --Matilda talk 07:23, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

Shouldn't Sudanese be listed under Africa as opposed to Asia - West? Egyptian, which is closer to the Middle East/Asia is listed under Africa. GizzaDiscuss © 07:31, 30 October 2010 (UTC)

I've gone ahead and made the change. In my opinion this was an obvious mistake but anyone is entitled to talk about it here if they wish. GizzaDiscuss © 11:20, 13 December 2010 (UTC)
