Emigration Moods 2019
November 26, 2019 01:35


The proportion of young people who want to leave Russia has grown to a maximum in 10 years.

More than half of Russians aged 18-24 want to emigrate, a Levada Center poll showed. This is a record for the last ten years. Emigration moods are growing, including among wealthy Russians.

More than half of Russians (53%) aged 18-24 want to go abroad forever, according to a survey conducted by the Levada Center in September. This is a record for the last ten years. In 2009, 29% of respondents under 24 expressed a desire to emigrate.

The number of young people who want to leave Russia has risen sharply over the summer of 2019, according to the Levada Center: in May, 37% of young respondents spoke about the desire to move abroad. Sociologists note that emigration sentiment among young people began to grow five years ago. In May 2014, 22% of respondents from this age group wanted to leave, after a year - one in three.

The survey also revealed an increase in emigration sentiment, including among wealthy Russians whose income allows them to purchase durable goods. Of these, 28% want to emigrate (in May 2009 it was 18%). On average, 21% of Russians expressed a desire to emigrate (in May 2009 it was 16%). More often, respondents with higher education (26%) say they want to leave, Levada Center shows.

The most popular reason for thinking about emigration is the desire to provide a decent future for children - it was named by 45% of respondents of all ages who expressed a desire to emigrate. The second most popular reason is the situation in the Russian economy (40%). The third place is taken by the political situation in Russia (33%).

Among those who thought about emigration or are already taking steps to leave, there is a higher proportion of people dissatisfied with the state of affairs in the economy or the political situation in the country. The activities of Vladimir Putin are not approved by 46% of those wishing to leave - against 27% of respondents who do not think about emigration.

In total, the Levada Center interviewed 1,601 people over the age of 18 in 137 settlements, the error does not exceed 3.4%.
