REPORT FROM PAKISTAN

Lahore: In a survey by the Pakistan Institute of Development Economics (PID), it has been revealed that 37 percent of the citizens of Pakistan wish to leave the country. Educated people are the most willing to leave the country, while people who have not completed their education are the least willing to leave the country.

Educated People Most Willing To Leave

Pakistan-administered Jammu and Kashmir has the highest proportion of people wanting to leave the country. However, among the four provinces, Balochistan has the highest proportion of people who want to leave the country.

During the survey, the citizens of the four provinces and administered territories belonging to all ages and genders were asked the question that if they were given the opportunity to leave Pakistan, would they like to do so or not?

According to the survey results, 37 percent of the total population of the four provinces and three administrative regions would like to leave the country if they were given the opportunity to leave the country.

According to statistics, 40 percent of citizens in urban areas wish to leave the country, compared to 36 percent in rural areas. Among the four provinces, Balochistan has the highest number of emigrants at 42 percent, followed by Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Sindh, while Punjab has the lowest proportion.

Among Pakistan-administered territories, Pakistan-administered Jammu and Kashmir has the highest number of people willing to leave the country at 44 percent, with Gilgit-Baltistan having a lower proportion.

Islamabad Capital Territory has the lowest proportion of people who want to leave the country.

Balochistan not only has the lowest number of people wanting to stay in the country at 47 percent, but also the highest proportion of people at 11 percent who are undecided about whether they want to leave the country or stay in the country.

Desirability Stats By Age And Gender

According to the survey data, the desire to leave the country is higher among men in all age groups than among women. The number is highest among younger men (ages 15 to 24), with 62 percent of 15 to 24 year olds wanting to leave the country.

Aspiration by level of education

According to the statistics, the desire to leave the country is lowest among those who have never attended school, at 22 percent. The number of people willing to leave the country increases with the level of education.

Desire by income level

According to the data, the willingness to leave the country increases with income, but after a certain threshold this willingness decreases. Thus, this desire is seen in the same condition in low income and high income people.

Why do they want to leave?

According to the data, the search for equal opportunities and greater respect are the two main reasons. In addition, gender equality and the search for greater security are also major reasons for wanting to leave the country.

44 percent of the people who want to leave the country to seek more income and better opportunities are the highest.

The financial factor or better income is a major reason for leaving the country for all, but in Sindh and Baluchistan the desire for more respect is more than the desire for equal opportunities. Sindh has the highest number of people wanting to leave the country for greater security, followed by Balochistan and Pakistan-administered Jammu and Kashmir. The desire to leave the country for gender equality is most reported in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. In Gilgit-Baltistan, this desire is motivated by reasons related to better and higher education.
