Many people are leaving big cities

-

Life outside the big city is becoming more and more attractive to people. One study says families are particularly nervous. Possible reasons: high prices, limited living space.


In 2021, major German cities lost more population due to displacement than in 1994. Departure increased in smaller cities and rural areas compared to pre-Corona 2019 1.8 percentAs the Federal Institute for Population Research (BiB) in Wiesbaden announced on Monday.

Number in the same period additions Independent cities with more than 100,000 inhabitants 5.4 percent fell. This means that the balance of internal migration in big cities is lower than it has been in 30 years.

The reasons for the move are housing shortages and high prices.

Compared to 2019, those leaving major cities in 2021 were mostly 30 to 49-year-olds (3.7 percent increase) and minors (8.9 percent increase). PiP expert Tamilwai Kolowa explained:

The numbers show that suburbanization of families continues to intensify, which we observed even before the pandemic in 2021.

Possible causes are:

  • changing life choices
  • housing shortage
  • consistently high house prices

Suburbanization is also often referred to as urban migration.

Corona had a huge impact on people entering and leaving

BiB experts used 2019 as the last year before Corona for comparison, as movement behavior was particularly affected during the pandemic. A spokesperson explained that in 2020, the number of job-related relocations decreased due to new hires or training, among other things. Therefore, comparing 2021 with the previous year is problematic.”

BiB explained that major cities have already recorded population losses in 2020, but this is mainly due to declining population mobility in the first year of the epidemic. Areas around the city in particular, but also smaller towns and even rural areas benefited from the substantial increase in immigration in 2021. All of them gained population through immigration.

According to the Federal Institute for Population Studies, the calculations are based on current figures from the Federal Statistical Office.
