UFA, 7 November 2019. /Bashinform News Agency/ translated by Tatiana Aksyutina/.
The All-Russian Center for Public Opinion Study (VCIOM) presented research data on the migration trends of Russians within the country.
25% of Russians aged 25 to 34 think about moving to a permanent place of residence in another city in Russia. Men mostly do not want to move — 75%, as well as residents of Moscow and St. Petersburg — 84%.
The study showed that the main reasons why modern Russians want to move to another city in Russia are the factor of unemployment or remoteness of work (18%), a higher standard of living in another settlement (15%), environmental reasons (13%), as well as a preference for a more favorable climate (12%).
Among those who would like to move to another locality in Russia, 61% of Russians would like to move to urban localities and 34% — to the countryside. St. Petersburg is the most popular moving destinations for Russians (15%). The second place went to Moscow (8%), the third – to Krasnodar (6%).
