Czechland Gets Bigger

Czechland has gotten bigger this year.  The population is now 10,68 million people. 

In the first nine months of the year the population increased by 31.400 people.

There have been 85.000 births and 83.700 deaths.

So far this year 49.000 people moved to Czech Republic from abroad while 19.300 have left the country.  So of the 31.400 people that the population increased by, 29.900 was due to immigration.

For the first time, Ukrainians now outnumber Slovaks here.  In total, the largest numbers of foreigners living in Czechia are from Ukraine, Slovakia, Vietnam, Russia, Poland, and Germany.

Some other stats from the Czech Statistical Office (ČSÚ) show that:

  • While the birth rate was higher than the mortality rate, there was a decrease in both the number of births and the number of deaths from the previous year.
  • The number of children born to married couples dropped 2% and the number born out of wedlock dropped 3%.
  • The average life expectancy for a man is 72,8 years and for a woman it is 80,2 years.
  • 47.100 people got married but that's 1.650 less than last year.
  • There were 17.600 divorces which is about the same as last year.
