Every year thousands of Estonians, most of them young with low or medium-level skills, leave Estonia to find better paid work abroad. Given Estonia’s small population and low birth rate, this significant loss of workers exacerbates the challenges posed by the ageing of its population. This paper evaluates policy options to help combat this trend by making local jobs more attractive.
