EU population growth caused by migration

EU population growth caused by migration
The population of the European Union has increased due to migration during 2017, the EU statistical office revealed on Tuesday...

It rose to 512.6 million as of Jan. 1, 2018 from 511.5 million last year, according to Eurostat.

"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," Eurostat said in a statement.

Germany is the most populated member country of the bloc with 82.9 million residents, or 16.2 percent of the total EU population.
