Stock of nationals abroad comprise the persons whose country of usual residence is not the same as their country of origin for any given country of origin. A person’s country of residence is the country in which the person has a place to live where he or she normally spends the daily period of rest. A person’s country of origin is that from which the person originates, i.e. the country of his or her citizenship (or, in the case of stateless persons, the country of usual residence).
