    Eastern (Kresy) Poles in modern Poland



    Distribution in modern Poland (by region) of Poles with ancestry from former Polish Eastern Lands:



    Sources: a 2012 survey by CBOS, 1950 census and Leszek Kosiński's publications from the 1960s.

    Actually county-level data is available from the 1950 census about origins of the population in the so called Recovered Territories of Poland.

    I checked in PAST how they cluster together and about 20 different clusters can be distinguished based on similar population composition:

    Font colour of county names is based on administrative divisions (not all counties belong to the main cluster of their particular province):



    ^^^
    That clustering was done based on data from the 1950 census about 22 different types of origin according to place of residence in 1939:

    Cluster name is listed near each county:



    ^^^ Here is how the map of clusters looks like, as you can see clusters based on origin of the inhabitants correlate well with geography:

    ^^^ There is also data for the whole country, year 1950 origin of population by province (post-war provinces):

    Some provinces included both areas that were parts of Poland in 1939 and areas that were parts of Germany in 1939:
    (Gdansk Voivodeship in 1950 included pre-1939 "Polish Corridor", former Free City Danzig, and a few more counties)



    And here the 1950 names of Voivodeships (provinces) added - at that time they were named after capital cities:

    ^^^ I wonder if similar data is available for the formerly Non-Czech areas of Sudetenland, which were settled by Czechs and others after WW2.

    AFAIK a lot of people in these areas are Volhynian Czechs (= ethnic Czechs from Ukraine), as well as Slovaks, Carpathian Rusyns and Gypsies:

    This map shows the distribution of ethnic Czechs in the early 20th century - areas in the north-west of the country had almost no ethnic Czechs:
