Numbers of people naturalised, by major country of origin, 1919–1939

This graph shows how the number of Yugoslavs naturalised between 1919 and 1939 far exceeded that for any other individual country. However, Scandinavian countries (Denmark, Norway and Sweden) together accounted for the next highest number. The numbers of Germans and Italians naturalised were also significant.
