Czech Republic, March 22 (BD) â âAt the end of the year, our population was 10.516 million, with a total annual increase of 21,900 people. However, the natural monetary balance was negative, as there were 28,100 more deaths than births, the deepest natural decline in the history of the Czech Republic since its establishment in 1918. The cause of population growth in 2021 was only a positive balance of foreign migration. , while the number of immigrants exceeded the number of emigrants by 50,000,â said Terezie Styrler, head of population statistics at the CZSO.
111,800 children were born during the year, 1,600 more than in 2020. The number of children born increased despite the decline in the number of women of childbearing age, which means an increase in fertility to 1.83 children per woman, the most since 1992. The share of children born out of wedlock remained unchanged from the previous year at 48.5%.
A total of 46,800 couples got married, up 1,400 year-on-year. However, this figure was still lower than that of 2015-2019. The fewest marriages took place in January and the most in August. Three quarters of the couples were getting married for the first time. In terms of age, the most numerous are married people aged 28-31 and married people aged 26-30. In more than a tenth of the marriages, at least one of the spouses was a foreign national.
Foreign migration recorded a positive balance of 50,000 people, up 23,000 year-on-year and the highest since 2009. 69,200 people immigrated to the Czech Republic from abroad and 19,200 people left.https://brnodaily.com/2022/03/22/news/czech-population-continues-to-grow-mespite-historically-high-death-rate/https://brnodaily.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/03/baby-hands-child-sucks-fists_1112-1205.jpghttps://brnodaily.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/03/baby-hands-child-sucks-fists_1112-1205-150×100.jpgCzech Republic / WorldCzech Republic,News,PeopleAccording to the 2021 population, housing and housing census, the Czech Republic had 10.494 million inhabitants at the beginning of 2021, increasing by 21,900 over the year.
