Young People in Particular Emigrate from Lithuania


Mostly young people emigrate form Lithuania because they cannot find any job. There emigrate mainly those who have been seeking jobs for over a year. These are the results of the data collected by the Department of Statistics (Statistikos departamentas). The data are for the year 2012.

Last year 75 per cent of emigrants couldn’t find a job over a period longer than one year. People in the 20 to 29 age bracket constitute 41 per cent of the emigrants; those between 30 and 34—12 per cent.

Children under 15 years old constitute 13 per cent of the emigrants and people over 65—only one per cent of emigrants.

The number of emigrants it twice as high as the number of people returning to Lithuania. 79 per cent declared that they emigrated to the EU countries, especially Great Britain, Ireland and Scandinavian countries.
