Families with young children - especially those with higher incomes and with no migration background - seem to be fleeing the large Dutch cities. In all four large cities more young families moved out of the municipality than in smaller municipalities, Statistics Netherlands reported on Wednesday.
A significant number of families with young children are moving away from the large Dutch cities, Statistics Netherlands reported on Tuesday. Of the couples who had their first child in 2012 in one of the municipalities outside the four large cities, 14 percent moved to another municipality within four year. In the large cities, that percentage is two to three times as high.
Many young families in the Netherlands traded big city living for a house in a small town nearby over the past two years, Statistics Netherlands revealed on Thursday.
