The Ugric peoples (/ˈjuːɡrɪk/) are ethnic groups that speak a Ugric language. They include Hungarians, Khanty, and Mansi.

The largest of the Ugric people by far are the Hungarians, numbering 13–14 million. They live in the Carpathian Basin, mainly in their nation state Hungary. The Khanty (21,000[1]) and Mansi (12,000[2]) peoples live in the Ob river area of Russia, mostly in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug. There is also a significant Khanty population in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug. The Khanty and Mansi together are called Ob-Ugrians.
