Five regions for the nationality of unauthorized immigrants are used in this report. They come from two different data sources: (1) labor force surveys and (2) asylum seeker data for those with pending decisions. A single asterisk (*) indicates a country or territory that appears in the country list of regions coded in labor force surveys, but not in the country list of asylum seekers with a pending decision. On the other hand, a double asterisk (**) indicates a country or territory appears in the country list of asylum seekers with a pending decision but was not part of the country list for regions coded in labor force surveys. (Note that some countries in the pending asylum seeker list had no asylum seekers in any EU-EFTA country between 2014 and 2017. Also, asylum seekers with unknown or no nationality (stateless) were considered to have an unknown nationality.)
