The data of the European Union statistics office, Eurostat, published May 28, have found that about 3.8 percent of EU citizens at a productive age lived in a different member state than their homeland last year, up from 2.5 percent recorded 10 years ago.
Regarding Slovakia, the share of its nationals living in a different state of the Union amounted to 6 percent, up from 3.6 percent 10 years ago and from 4.3 in 2012, the Denník N quoted Eurostat.
The situation is different in individual member countries: while Germany recorded only 1 percent of its citizens at a productive age (i.e. between 20 and 64 years of age) living in another EU country, in Romania it was nearly 20 percent. People with university education are more mobile than the rest of the population, according to Eurostat.
The employment rate of mobile EU citizens is also higher than that of the entire population: 76.1 percent, compared with the total EU employment rate of 72.1 percent, Eurostat informed.
