    Actually the two are very different in meaning. One’s “nationality” is the nation of which one is a citizen (and hopefully, to which one gives his/her allegiance/loyalty); therefore, is more of a political identification.While one’s “ethnicity” is one’s genetically inherited physical traits and has no political ties. Oddly enough, in 2004, the Federal Reserve Board changed the Residential Mortgage Application for the applicants’ race/gender information to read, ethnicity/race/gender.Per this regulatory change, for some reason, one’s ETHNICITY options are: Latino or Non-Latino !So, the government only recognizes a person’s ethnicity as you are either a Latino or a Non-Latino! How wierd is that?

    This is complicated—but here are some points. Ethnic is blood related form of identity. National does not have to be.Many different ethnicities can form a nation..ie USA. Or, the same ethnic group, say Anglo-Saxons having different nationalities as in UK and USA.People of the same ethnicity in their place of origin may speak the same language…i.e Italians in Italy. People of the same ethnic group may speak different languages, due to migration. Most Italian Americans speak little or no Italian.This brings us to nationality. It may comprise of the same ethnic group..i.e Japan, it may not. Similarities may include language. Customs, culture.. etc.
