This year’s rate is the lowest since research began four years ago, the Rzeczpospolita daily reported.
According to a report from Work Service, the average potential economic migrant is over 35 and lives in the countryside or a town in the central part of the country. They are typically trade-school or high-school educated and earn at least PLN 3,000 (EUR 697, USD 783).
The most popular destinations are Germany (23.3 percent), Norway (15.6 percent) and Sweden (14.7 percent).
Maciej Witucki, chairman of Work Service, said the drop is the result of a favourable situation on the domestic labour market and rising wages.
Earlier this month, Labour Minister Elżbieta Rafalska said that unemployment in Poland held steady at 5.7 percent in October, the lowest rate in 28 years.
