Unless otherwise described in the text, this page is about native speakers — not the total number of speakers. How many people understand or speak Mongolian 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 unlikely to be listed here.
