Why Poland

Population

Poland’s social structure has undergone radical changes since WW II. The major factors forming these changes have been both political and economic processes. A significant factor dividing Poland’s social structures, have been the inherent regional differences that relate to the level of economic development. Whereas prior to WW II Poland was a multicultural state, today it can be said to be made up of one national group.

There are 38.4 mln people living permanently in Poland, 123 residents per 1 km2. The largest numbers of residents are to be found in the voivodships of: Mazowsze, ¦l±sk, Wielkopolska and Małopolska; the least in Podlasie, Opole and the Lubuskie regions. Urban residents form 60.2% of the country’s population and the largest shares occur in the voivodships of Dolny ¦l±sk, Zachodniopomorskie and Pomorze; the largest ratios of people living in rural areas are in the Lublin, Podkarpacie and the Swiętokrzyskie regions.

35.2 mln of residents (91.6% of the population) claim that Polish is their only nationality.  The remaining population declare themselves as German, Belarusian, Ukrainian and Romany, with 4.8% of the total number not stating their ethnic origin. 98.1% of the inhabitants were born in Poland, and 99.7% has no other citizenship than Polish.
