In September 2014, the total population of Morocco stood at 33,848,242, and only 0.2 per cent were foreign immigrants. Morocco is, indeed, a major migrant-sending country. Firstgeneration, Morocco-born migrants residing abroad stood at 2.8 million, of whom 2.4 million were in Europe as of 2011, the largest number from any Southern Mediterranean country. As for 'Moroccans Residing Abroad' ('Marocains Résidant à l'Etranger'), who are first-generation migrants and born-abroad second and third generations, estimates vary between 4 and 4.5 million.
