Press release 033 / 2017-01-27: Germany's population expected to have increased to 82.8 million

WIESBADEN – The number of inhabitants of Germany has returned to an upward trend since 2012, which is due to the above-average migration surpluses. Based on an estimate, the Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) currently expects that roughly 82.8 million people lived here at the end of 2016. At the end of 2015, the figure had been 82.2 million people. This means that the all-time high of just over 82.5 million people reached at the end of 2002 would have been exceeded at the end of 2016.
