.exactly,,they must be there because Poland is How can a country be booming, and at the same time have mass emigration?

Easily. The UK was a great example of this during the good times.

Right, because apparently you have your own census organization, will that be part of your economic analysis department and pay-check verifying company?

And no one can make projections wether it be higher or lower? Don't be mean and tedious.

When was the last time the UK had mass emmigration? Probably moving to the empire to work for the british government.

There was a huge amount of emigration of the middle/educated classes up until very recently.

Is that Net migration? Probably not. You'll probably find that 400k probably come back the other way. Look at the British in Spain at the moment. Besides that British emigrants tend to do more skilled jobs then working on tables or cleaning hotel rooms or picking potatoes.

I think many of them returned after a few years. I saw a programme on this a while ago - three British families in Spain, they had sold everything in the UK and expected that life in Spain would be "easy' and 'relaxing". Of course, they couldn't find work, their children were bullied, etc etc.

They all had the most comical excuses for not finding work too, instead of just admitting that they went there without any real plan.

Not always the case. Alot of Brits in Spain either had money to live off or went to open/run businesses for the Tourists.

Oh, of course. When you consider how utterly insular the Brits are in Spain, it's a fantastic place to charge high prices to fellow Brits.

Funnily enough, in that programme, none of them had bothered to learn Spanish.

Quite a niave thing to say considering that Spanish is the third biggest taught language in the UK after French and German, Of course foreigners stick together wherever they are look at the Poles in the UK. The Brits are about as insular in Spain as the Poles in the US or the UK (how many Poles in Norfolk! and London?). Unlike the Polish language English is an international language with over 50% of the EU speaking it to some form or another so Brits don't have to learn a second language as much as the Poles. The people on the program probably spoke enough Spanish to get by. Also Brits look more insular because they run business and work on the costa's where other English go for holidays simple as.
