Foreign Nationals Living in French Departments

Thursday 05 April 2012

Newly released figures from the French statistical office show the popular departments of France for European and other foreign nationals.

The capital city Paris has the largest number of foreign nationals, with 330,000 who have decided to settle there, accounting for 4% of the total population.

Although the neighbouring department of Saint-Seine-Denis has a slightly lower total number of foreign nationals the department has the largest share (20.9%) as a percentage of its total population. It is followed by Paris (14.95%) and Val-de-Marne (12.8%).

When (non-French) European nationals only are considered then the Gers (82%) in the Midi-Pyrenees region has the highest proportion of Europeans as a percentage of total foreign nationals resident in a department. It is closely followed by the Lot (80.2%), Dordogne (77.3%) and Landes (76.3%).

The figures come from the French national statistical agency, INSEE. They complement the analysis by region, on which we reported in an earlier Newsletter, as well as an analysis of where the British live in France, links to which you can find at the bottom of this page.
