Every fourth person in the Capital Region is non-Danish, which divided means that 15 percent of Copenhageners are what Danes like to call ‘immigrants’ (immigrants from non-western countries and their descendants) and 10 percent are western foreigners: expats, lifetime deaths, love refugees etc.
But go outside the capital, and that share is drastic to the extent that Denmark’s share of foreigners is reduced to every eighth. There are so few outsiders that the share capital is diluted to half.
According to a new report from UpCounselDenmark is seriously lagging behind many countries in this respect. Its 12.4 percent outsider share ranked it last out of the top 24 countries rated as most attractive to emigrants.
Average performance overall
Denmark finished in 19th place in the report, which emphasizes that it has certain qualities that foreigners will find attractive when choosing a good country to move to.
Its Human Development Index score was high and it has a powerful pass.
But in what was a relatively crippled report, it is its “percentage of migrants as part of the country’s total population” that makes the most interesting reading.
