Survey: Most Germans stay close to home

BERLIN, July 19 (UPI) -- Germans are essentially homebodies who generally don't stray too far from their birthplaces, a survey indicates.

The survey, conducted by the German Web site Meinestadt.de, found that of the 10,500 Germans who answered a questionnaire, 54.7 percent live in or very near the city in which they grew up. And of those, 33.5 percent still lived in their actual childhood homes or on the same street, the German broadcaster Deutsche Welle reported Saturday.

Even those who moved away didn't move very far, the survey found. Fully half of those who no longer live in their birth cities still resided in the same German state.
