First population estimates - EU population up to nearly 513 million on 1 January 2018 - Increase driven by migration

Brussels, 10 July 2018

On 1 January 2018, the population of the European Union (EU)was estimated at 512.6 million, compared with 511.5 million on 1 January 2017. During the year 2017, more deaths than births were recorded in the EU
(5.3 million deaths and 5.1 million births), meaning that the natural change of the EU population was negative. The population change (positive, with 1.1 million more inhabitants) was therefore due to net migration.
