CNA - Athanasios Athanasiou - Belgium/Brussels 10/07/2019 14:37

The population of Cyprus increased from 864 200 in 2018 to 875 900 in 2019 , or by +13.4 (0.2% of the EU total).

In Greece the population decreased from 10.7412 million in 2018 to 10.7223 milion in 2019 or by -1.8 (2.1 of the EU total), according to Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union, which issued a press release ahead of the World Population Day (11 July)

According to Eurostat, on 1 January 2019, the population of the European Union (EU) was estimated at almost 513.5 million, compared with 512.4 million on 1 January 2018. During 2018, more deaths than births were recorded in the EU (5.3 million deaths and 5.0 million births), meaning that the natural change of the EU population was negative for a second consecutive year.

The population change (positive, with 1.1 million more inhabitants) was therefore due to net migration.
