Immigrant is defined as an individual that is born abroad and has parents that both are born abroad and have a foreign background. That means that both grandparents are born abroad. Countries of birth were categorized using the United Nation‘s index measuring health, education, and finance (Human Development Index). The index ways togeather measures of health, knowledge, and the financial status of country. The year 2015 was used as a reference year for categorising the countries, since the figures from 2015 were the latest available figures in the making of these statistics. The index ranges from 0 to 1. When an estimate is based on less than 5 individuals Statistics Iceland does not report the results due to privacy concerns.
