Two European geographers survey the change in numbers, location, and composition of Estonia's non-titular population utilizing census returns for the period 1934-2000. Much attention is devoted to an investigation of return migration of non-Estonians to other FSU republics in the 1990s. Also covered are changes in the spatial distribution of Estonia's minorities and the dynamics of age structure as a result of its natural evolution, the sharp decline in fertility, and emigration of younger cohorts. Additionally, the authors also investigate trends in employment affecting the country's principal ethnic minorities.
In 2013, the Ministry of Social Affairs (MoSA) ordered for the fifth time a survey to determine the migration potential of Estonia’s working-age population, i.e. the number of persons in Estonia who firmly intend to work abroad and have made preparations to this end.
