European Demographic Datasheet

The European Demographic Datasheet 2016 shows key demographic data; population trends and projections until 2050. It covers fertility; mortality; migration and population structure; including population ageing; and their changes. The datasheet combines data for all countries of Europe and for broader European regions; as well as maps; population pyramids; tables; graphs and featured thematic boxes. It pays special attention to the importance of migration for the current and future population changes across the continent and to the alternative indicators of population ageing. In comparison to the Data Sheet Poster; this online version provides expanded data coverage; additional maps and population pyramids; ranking charts and details about data sources and definitions. It also allows users to download all data and images.

The team at the VID and IIASA prepares the European Demographic Datasheet bi-annually.
