“In your opinion, how important should the following be as requirements for somebody seeking citizenship of your country? Specify for each requirement if you consider it as very important, rather important or not important: Having ancestors from my country.”
Citizens of various countries were asked this question.
#1 — In most countries, the lower-classes are more “voelkisch” than the upper-classes.
#2 — World youth seem to be becoming more “voelkisch” than their elders. This was unexpected to me. (Neither of these are products of “IDKs” distorting the sample as in China’s case [see note-#5 here]).
– “Voelkisch” values were found to generally soften (towards “Ancestry is Not Important”) among youth overall in the six countries analyzed, as compared to their parents and grandparents. This is “mostly” the opposite of the world trend.
– A revival of “voelkisch” attitudes in at least a segment of youth populations is also seen in each of the six countries analyzed. Which segment of the youth is breaking the trend is the opposite between Europe and East-Asia. Among Europeans born after 1975, ethnic-identitarianism skews lower-class; among East-Asians born after 1975, ethnic-identitarianism skews upper-class.
Anyway, I find no explanation for the world trend of an overall rise in Youth-”Yes [to ethnic identity]” from these six individual cases. I did not do in-depth analysis for anywhere except Europe and East-Asia.
Why would people born after 1975 be more likely to answer “Yes” to this question than people born in the 1930s-1960s?
