You should clarify what you mean with "ethnic French". The numbers you cite for Canada, Belgium and Switzerland are simply the French-speaking minorities in those countries. Those people don't self-identify as "Frenchmen" but as "French speaking".

By etnic french I mean people who are of french descent whether these people speak french or claim to be frenchmen is irrelevant as long as their anscestors are from France. In the case of canada it just happens that the french speaking population is very close to the french ethnic population.

Then you should exclude at least the Belgian and Swiss ones. They definitely don't have French ancestors. It just happens that the French-speaking region in Europe is a bit larger than France - and that predates the existence of France.

go to my source wikipedia i just put what it said.it is french people like there are anglo saxon people

And that table is plain wrong. The 4.2 million "Frenchmen" in Belgium are exactly the French-speaking community in Belgium. That has nothing to do with French ancestry. The southern part of Belgium has been French speaking (or rather, Walloon or Picardian or another Romance language/dialect) since more than 1,000 years. Ditto for Switzerland.

"It's true; it's on Wikipedia" Totally agree with the points made above, sorry.

When the word "ethnic" is used, I think about colour of skin. And there ain't 64 million white people in France, I can assure you that.

@oppmannen you've confused ethnicity with race. however everyone else is correct that belgium/switzerland shouldn't be there.

Surprised to see: Vietnam (it has a European minority?) Surprised not to see: South Africa (what about the Hugenots?) Three things get mixed up in this quiz: 1.French-speaking, 2.French by ethnicity 3.French by citizenship. -This actually shows me that the whole concept of "ethnicity" does not properly work any longer...

In France there is a very strong diagreement about ethic statistics. We tried it only once in history, counting Jews during WWII. We also had some kind of "apartheid" in French Algeria. You can understand why we gave up ethnic countings. Therefore, ther's is no such thing like an census of people living in France according to their ethnicity (and personnaly I'm happy wiht that). 64 million is simply the total population of France according to the census, whatever the color of the skin of the curve of the nose. Of course, every figure in this quiz depends on the definition used in each census (of how it has been understood by however collected those ethnicities). Needless to say, no serious comparison is possible.
