77% of Our Immigrants Will Not Come Back! [Archives:1998/46/Front Page]

November 16 1998

In a Yemen Times worldwide poll last week, 77% of Yemeni immigrants said they do not plan to return to the country, if present conditions persist. 119 persons answered the question, which was on-line for a week.
The question was: “If present conditions remain, will you as a Yemeni living abroad, come back (to Yemen)?” The question allowed a simple yes or no answer. Most people decided they don’t want to come back.
Yemen Times runs a weekly question, on-line, which is answered primarily by Yemenis living abroad, mostly in the USA.
The poll question can be accessed at the YT homepage www.yementimes.com.
