Survey Reveals Nearly Half of Pakistanis will Leave Country if Given Chance

A recent survey has revealed that a huge population would leave their country of birth to settle in a country with more opportunities and a better lifestyle if given the chance to.

The research found that 42% of Balochistan’s inhabitants want to leave Pakistan, the highest of the four provinces followed by Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and Sindh.

The study found that living with dignity was the second-biggest reason Pakistanis wanted to leave.

The people of Sindh are more eager to leave for security, followed by Balochistan and Kashmir.

From 1971 to June 2020, over 11.2 million Pakistanis sought work in 52 countries, according to the Pakistan Bureau of Immigration and Overseas Employment.

Some 62% of people aged between 15 and 24 wish to leave the country, however, the desire diminishes with age.
