In the census of 2011, it was the first time when population of the country had the opportunity to express complex national-ethnic identity.

There were 809 000 declaration of Silesian identity. In that only 362 000 declared only Silesian self-identification,while 415 000 presented themselves as Polish and Silesian.
About ​228 000 people, declared Kashubian identity with 212 000 expressing Polish-Kashubian nationality, and 16 thousand. - Only Kashubian.

In 2011 about109 000 residents declared German ethnicity. In 2002 it was 150 thousand.
Ukrainian ethnicity declared about 48 000 Polish citizens. As Belorussian declared themselves 47 000, as Roma (Gypsy) - 16 000. There about 13 000 Russians, 11 000 Americans (USA), 10 000 £emko (interesting) , and about 10 000 English.

Hey what about Scots ? I guess English stand for British.

At the time according to census there is about 1.94 million Polish citizens who are living abroad for more than a year.
Most of them were staying in the UK (30.2%), Germany (21.6 %)., USA (11.4 %)Ireland (6.5%). And the Netherlands (4.6 %)

Good post Ironside, are there any links in English or Polish for this on the web though?
Nice to see Germans assimilating :) The increase in Ukrainians must be due to the increase in Ukrainians who began coming over in the early 90s in large numbers and have since gained legal status??

I know there are many Polish-Ukrainians but the 2 or 3x increase must be due to immigration.

I don't know and to be honest I don't care that much.
I just stumbled upon some statics I found interesting and decided to share.
By all means you are welcome to use my thread to discus demography and ethnic shift in Poland.
