According to the last census (2011) the permanent population of the country is 10,815,197 inhabitants. The total number of immigrants is estimated to approximately 10% of the total population or 1,200,000 people. About half of them are legal residents of the country although the numbers have great deviations due to the lack of an official immigration policy and the political instability in neighbouring countries. Based on data from the Ministry of Interior and Administrative Reconstruction for 2015, the number of legal residents from third countries was 501,875 people, of which the largest percentage (68%) is of Albanian nationality, followed by people with Ukrainian (3.6%), Georgian (3.3%), Pakistani (3.1%), Russian, Indian (2.6% each) and Philippine (1.9%) citizenship, while nationals of other countries have smaller percentages. From 2011 to 2015 the numbers appear smaller mainly because of the economic crisis (fleeing from Greece, lack of legal documents due to unemployment/black labour) but also because two major countries sending migrants to Greece, Bulgaria and Romania joined the European Union.
