 Kazakhstan demographics Population by Immigrants

The combination of limited resources and increasing populations has left Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan with populations looking abroad for work and money. Remittances from workers abroad make up large parts of each of the three countries' gross domestic product — 48 percent for Tajikistan, 31 percent for Kyrgyzstan and 16.3 percent for Uzbekistan. Nearly all of the migrant workers from these Central Asian states work in either Kazakhstan or Russia. There are simply more and higher paying jobs in these two countries. Migrant workers are being paid 10-50 percent less than Russian or Kazakh citizens for the same low-level jobs, but that is still higher than what they would make at home. Increased flows of foreign workers will strain the Kazakh economy and could preclude some Kazakhs from competing with cheaper foreign labor. It will also increase animosity among the country's various ethnic groups at a time when ethnic tensions are already high in the region.
