Nice idea, it was challanging 6/10 right.
Dec 21st, 2010 at 02:22 GMT
Based on your source, you're missing North and South Korea, both apparently over 99% homogeneous.
Dec 21st, 2010 at 02:32 GMT
Thanks for letting me know, I'm changing it!

I didn't even think to try the North African countries. I always thought Arab and Berber were two separate ethnicities.
Dec 21st, 2010 at 06:56 GMT
@bwouns: They are actually. But according to the respective countries' statistics they are grouped together. You can notice it comparing with Egypt's stats stated here, with Berber grouped seperately.

Tricky subject, splitting according to ethnicity. Always going to be hard to define. Done very well here.

I don't know how Jordan, with an estimated 2 million Palestinian refugees living there for decades, makes this list.
Dec 21st, 2010 at 18:13 GMT
Because Palestinians are also Arabs.

I would have thought Bhutan would have made the list with how restrictive they are with immigration/emigration and tourism but the source lists them as almost 50% Bhoti, 35% Nepalese, 15% Tribal Peoples. Wow. Cool quiz.
Oct 3rd, 2011 at 16:50 GMT
There is plenty of immigrants in South Korea.
Nov 20th, 2011 at 20:10 GMT
@bwouns: you are right about Arab and Berber being separate ethnicities. I will take the North African countries off the list.

Based on the source, isn't Tuvalu higher than Lebanon?
Dec 2nd, 2012 at 17:43 GMT
I would include the Copts as a religious-ethnic group, like Sikhs and Sikhs. This is not to say that religion defines ethnicity, but it can play a huge role in creating it. But one CAN group them as Arab. So while the quiz is still correct, it's still awkward to call Egypt almost as homogenous as Japan. I might add though, that even Japan might be difficult, because nobody really knows how large the unofficial/illegal (for lack of a better word) Korean population exactly is.

Upon further reflection, this source seems to be a bad thing to base a quiz on. Look at Benin for an example of questionable presentation of information.
Dec 2nd, 2012 at 17:51 GMT
From the source: Benin: African 99% (42 ethnic groups, most important being Fon, Adja, Yoruba, Bariba), Europeans 5,500 Almost everybody in Benin is African! Who would have thought it!?
