Due to rising fertility rates and migration, Germany’s population will be on a high in the coming two decades. This study was reported by Funke media group with reference to a research done by the (IW).
According to a research done, number of German residents will increase by over a million compared to 2015 to reach more than 83.1 million in 2035.
The demographic increase will be pronounced in specific metropolitan centers such as Munich, Berlin and Hamburg. By 2035, an estimated count of 4 million inhabitants is predicted, an increase of 500,000 or 14.5 percent from 2015.
Study says that Hamburg and Munich are expected to see 14.5 percent and 9 percent population increase respectively until 2035.
Evidently it’s a big contrast, steep population declines are forecast for the German eastern states of Thuringia (minus 10.2 percent) and Saxony-Anhalt (minus 10.6 percent)
Nevertheless, as per study, the ‘downward trend’ in Germany’s population was ‘missing the track.’ The key focus behind the upward trend towards growth were rising fertility rates, as well as migration. In spite of the huge presence of refugees from Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq in 2015, the IW researchers are of the belief that immigration will continue to surpass earlier numbers in years to come.
