PEOPLE

According CBS Statline, the official statistics bureau of the Netherlands, the ethnic origins of the citizens are very diverse. The vast majority of the population however still remains Dutch. They were: 80.8% Dutch, 8.7% other European, 2.2% Turkish, 1.9% Moroccan, 6.4% other. However, this does not include the whole Kingdom of the Netherlands i.e. Aruba and the Antilles, which have a majority Afro-Carribbran community.

There are no cities with a population over 1 million in the Netherlands, but the 'four big cities' as they are called (Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht) can in many ways be regarded as one 'big city' agglomeration, the Randstad ('fringe city'), with an agricultural 'green heart' (het Groene Hart). This is illustrated by the idea to create a circular train network with a frequency and carriages similar to a metropolitan railway. The 5 biggest cities are, in order of population: Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague (Den Haag), Utrecht and Eindhoven. Eindhoven is the only of these cities that is not located in the Randstad
