Results[edit]

National/ethnic identity[edit]

The Census included two questions regarding national and ethnic identity:

  • What is your nation? ("Jaka jest Pana/Pani narodowość?")[1] The Census provided the following definition: "Nationality (national or ethnic affiliation) is a declared (based on subjective feeling) individual feature of the person, which expresses their emotional, cultural or genealogical relationship (due to the origin of parents) with a specific nation".[2]
  • Do you feel an affiliation with another nation or ethnic group? ("Czy odczuwa Pan/Pani przynależność także do innego narodu lub wspólnoty etnicznej?")
  • 93.8% of surveyed declared Polish ethnicity; 3,8% other and 2,4% gave no answer.
  • 99.7% of those surveyed declared Polish citizenship; 0.2% declared other citizenship.
