Question and answer
The Netherlands were successful at, and depended on, A. subsistence agriculture. B. nomadic foraging. C. maritime trade. D. military expansion.
When looking at the migration statistics, the Netherlands could be easily designated as an immigration country. For many decades, at least 100,000 immigrants have settled yearly in this country (Dutch Statistics, 2007). [ Moreover, immigration during the last thirty years has largely surpassed the number of people moving away from the Netherlands. It has only been in the last five years that
the number of immigrants has been exceeded by those emigrating from the Netherlands (ibid.). Indeed, long-term massive immigration has increased the percentage of immigrants in the total population. During the early 1970s, first- and second-generation immigrants accounted for a little less than ten percent of all inhabitants in the Netherlands. Today immigrants comprise one fifth of the total population. Together with varying immigration magnitudes, the ethnic composition has changed considerably over this period. Unlike in the past, the majority of immigrants nowadays originate from non-western countries. Among these non-western countries, Turkey, Morocco and Surinam make up the highest procentage; combined these countries account for more than one million inhabitants in the Netherlands, compared to little more than 100,000 three decades ago. To a lesser extent, several so-called refugee countries - including Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran and former Yugoslavia – are substantial suppliers of immigrants. Approximately one in three immigrants in the Netherlands originates from the territory of the European Union, particularly Belgium and Germany (Dutch Statistics, 2007). ]
