Lack of trust in authorities, corruption and low living standards are the main reasons why young people leave Romania. The data is part of a Europa FM Barometer published on Monday, conducted by IMAS.
IMAS study also shows that over 60% of respondents say they would advise young people not to leave the country.
Europa FM Barometer, carried out by IMAS and commissioned by Europa FM radio station, was aimed at finding out the public perception of the reasons why some young people choose to leave Romania.
When asked what they would say to a young person thinking about leaving the country, most respondents (61.2%) would tell them this is not a good decision, while 33.9% would suggest exactly the opposite – that it is a good decision to leave Romania for good.
With Europe FM Barometer we wanted to find out the reasons why young people could decide to leave the country for good. Thus, when asked “what do you think it is the main reason why some young people make the decision to leave Romania for good”, most of them (31.3) point to “the lack of trust in authorities” and “corruption”.
The survey was conducted between August 5 and 28, 2019 – on a sample of 1010 people over 18 years of age. The sample error is +/- 3.1%.
