This paper compares Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian university students’ attitudes toward migration. A comparative analysis of statistical data about migration from Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania to other countries, and a documentary analysis of population census data are presented here to provide contextual background to the study. Observations, questionnaires and interviews with the students were used. The findings of the study revealed that young peoples’ attitudes toward mobility among the three Baltic States were similar at the global and personal levels, and differentiated at the country level. Keywords: Migration, mobility, attitude, population census, Baltic States
