Because northern Poles are mainly Polish transplants from Ukraine and Belarus, right?

Quite a lot of their families were indeed from the Kresy.

Same as a sizeable proportion of the Wrocław population comes from Lwów. Including the famous Ossolineum library.
I would not call them transplants though. Rather very unwilling emigrants.
They were deported by the Soviets from their ancestral homelands and kicked to ancestral German homelands.

No more that 30% of current residents of this part of country are the Polish moved from from Ukraine and Bialorus.
It's definitely more complicated. It's not like in Wroclaw. Ask our premier minister - Donald Tusk - he is a Pole and his family are native to native to North Poland. ;)

Got some statistics to support that? At least in the Slupsk region a lot more than 30% of the current residents are descended from people who were moved there from Ukraine and Belorus.
