18% of Immigrant Men Plan to Leave Netherlands

Trouw reports on a survey released by the national statistics bureau (CBS). According to the survey 18% of immigrant men have plans to live abroad temporarily or for good, compared to 7% among ethnic Dutch men. The number of women with plans for emigration is significantly lower but is twice as high among immigrants than among ethnic Dutch. In the past months the number of people with emigration plans decreased as some families are deciding not to emigrate due to the economic crisis.
