Migration in the CZ

Three fifths of Czechs over 15 years of age (61 %) have moved house at least once in the course of their lives, with 25 % moving only once, 19 % twice, 11 % three times and 6 % respondents said that during their lives they had moved more than three times. In the population over 19 years of age, two thirds (66 %) of inhabitants have experienced moving at least once. The ratio of people, who have never moved during their lifetime, is significantly higher in villages than in towns.

From the regional point of view, most movers are among residents of Prague and north-western parts of Bohemia (the Karlovy Vary and Ústi Regions). On the other hand people from central Moravia (the Olomouc and Zlín Regions) are least likely to change their homes.
