1The ethnic groups listed have small percentages due to the large number of different people groups contained within Mozambique's border. Other African groups are mostly Bantu-linguistic groups such as Nyanja, Makua, Chopi, Tswa, and Chwabo. There is also a noticable Asian population, particularly from India and China.
