Personnel Region of Origin
The main region or regions where the personnel member spent formative years. This may, or may not, be the location of their Birthplace, as defined below. “Region” may be a country, a subnational geographic unit (e.g., Quebec; Basque Country, Yakutia) or supranational entity (the European Union, the former Soviet Union, or the Commonwealth of Independent States). The purpose is to give an additional level of geographic access to Birthplace.
