Via Helsingin Sanomat:
Native-born Finns have started to move out of suburbs in the greater Helsinki area, where the proportion of foreign-born residents is increasing. The trend is reflected in a sharp increase in residents speaking languages other than Finnish or Swedish.
In the Suvela area of Espoo the proportion of people speaking foreign languages has increased from 7.6 per cent in 2000 to 20.7 per cent in 2009.
Researchers have used the term “white flight” for the process in which the proportion of minorities in a neighbourhood grows through migration and births at the expense of that of the native population who start gravitating away from the areas.
