V. Kumpikaitė Valiūnienė, M. Lukauskas, and E. Agoh
Abstract— This paper presents Lithuanians’ emigration reasons evaluating economic and noneconomic push-pull factors in the main destination countries in Europe. 449 respondents from the UK, 365 from Norway and 104 from Germany filled questionnaires online. A study was conducted in fall of 2015. Too low wages (economic) and personal life conditions (noneconomic) in Lithuania were highlighted as the most important push factors and higher incomes (economic) and relatives living in those countries (noneconomic) were depicted in all analysed countries.

Index Terms— Lithuania, international migration, migration reasons, push-pull factors.
