Unless otherwise described in the text, this page is about native speakers - not the total number of speakers. How many people understand or speak Bhojpuri as a subsequently learned language is not the subject of this page. Countries where native speakers make up only a few thousand or even a few hundred people, or countries with a percentage well below 1%, are maybe not listed here.
