Survey finds many young Poles still plan to emigrate

A new survey indicates that over a decade after Poland joined the EU, 41 percent of young Poles still plan to emigrate.

The poll by Millward Brown for commercial broadcaster TVN questioned Poles between the ages of 18 and 34.

Asked whether they had plans for temporary or permanent emigration, 41 percent of respondents said yes while 58 percent said no. Just 1 percent said they were undecided.

About 580,000 Polish citizens left their homeland after accession to the EU in 2004, with the UK proving the most popular destination.

By 2013 the number of Polish immigrants had risen to 1.9 million. Meanwhile, the number of those returning remains smaller than those leaving each year.

According to the European Commission, the average time spent abroad by Polish immigrants is 10 years.
