Berlin (dpa) - Young people in East and West assess their prospects according to a survey clearly different. Only 22 percent of 15- to 24-year-old West Germans would move to the East, conversely, there are 45 percent, as revealed by an Allensbach survey for the fast-food chain McDonald's.

The reason for this, the authors see that in the West, 76 percent of those surveyed for themselves see good career prospects in their own region. In the East, 55 percent.

In the East, young people appreciate cheap housing, family-friendly businesses, good childcare facilities and a good working atmosphere. The West could score with many jobs, good earning potential and high quality of life. Most respondents, however, want to stay in their region. Only about one in eight respondents wants a move.

The survey also found that the younger generation has far less financial and professional concerns than two years ago. Fear less and less of not being able to find a place to study or study, or not be able to make ends meet financially later on.
