    Poland is seriously "under-blued" as some three million people have left that country since 2004.

    Some of these people have returned or are returning, but, at the same time, some are also leaving for the first time ever due to lack of jobs and prospects in Poland, so I guess the two "categories" cancel each other out.

    There can be as few as 35 or 36 million people living in Poland as of now, despite the officially claimed "over 38 million inhabitants."

    Nowadays every Eastern European state (except for Russia, if you count that) is losing population. No immigration in, people are leaving, low fertility rates, and so on and so forth. Russia was in that state very recently too. I'm more interested in the demographics of Turkey. Anybody care to explain why is Turkey so varied in population growth and decline? Doesn't look like geography or economics really has such an effect on population changes as other places.

    Turkey is a very diverse country, To put it basically Kurds, And Turks usually have large families. Their population rises it doesn't decline.

    Here is an interesting site: http://brilliantmaps.com/

    Anyway does anyone else have a explanation for the vastly differing rates of population growth in various regions of Turkey?

    I checked the site and some of their maps are lame and incorrect.


    Belarus was never part of the Mongol Empire, not even as a tributary state. The Belarussian duchies of Pinsk and Polotsk were in fact the only of the Rus states to escape any sort of Mongol-Tatar control.


    I think there were also other mistakes, like the vikings "raiding Afghanistan and Uzbekistan" I guess that is news to these countries.

    Actually some of their maps are quite stupid. The one that really caught my eye was this one: http://brilliantmaps.com/religion-world-map/

    Interesting one this.
    How America associates being against their brand of "globalism" ie bowing down to "the Washington Consensus" aka a US vassal state with "being a terrorist".

    And the penalties for refusing to acquiesce range from "a peacekeeping mission" to combat.

    I don't remember Saddam Hussein being a fan of Al Qaeda. Infact he stamped them out of Iraq. Likewise Russia vs ISIS, Al Qaeda etc. But acc to the US neo cons, if you aren't an America-centric globalist... you are a "terrorist". Maybe thats why they hate Trump so much...

    What a fucked up regime..

    Poles and their genetic distance to the rest of Europe according to genetic research by a Russian scientist.

    Not sure how reliable it is.

    According to the map most close relatives of the Poles are Lusatian Serbs, Slovaks, Belarussians, and Russians (the last two appear more closely related to Poles than the Ukrainians).

    Have read complaints before, perhaps not about this specific study, that the people from cities tend to be over-represented in the genetic studies of the ethnic Poles from Poland, which skews the results, and that the sample sizes tend to be small, which may cause the results not to be very representative of the population as a whole.

    Also not sure what were the sample amounts for the other European countries and how representative are they.
