Population Growth Projections in Europe to 2030

Eurostat, the European Statistics Bureau, has issued a projection on population growth in the 27 Member States of the EU plus Norway and Switzerland.  This data is important in planning future sustainable development initiatives on regional, national and supranational levels.  The projections show a population increase in 2/3 of regions, but, by 2030, the share of the population aged 65 years or over is expected to range between 10.4 % and 37.3 %. In 2008, the range was between 9.1 % and 26.8 %.

Population projections are what-if scenarios that aim to provide information about the likely future size and structure of the population. Eurostat’s regional population projections scenario is one of several possible population change scenarios at regional level based on assumptions for fertility, mortality and migration.

The projections may be viewed in PDF format by clicking here.
