Romania’s Resident Population Decreased by Almost 100,000 People Compared to Last Year

According to the Romanian National Institute of Statistics, Romania’s resident population decreased by almost 100,000 people compared to 2019.
On January 1, 2020, Romania’s resident population was 19.31 million people, down 96,500 people from January 1, 2019, according to the National Institute of Statistics.
The resident population includes all persons (Romanian people, foreign or stateless) who have their habitual residence in Romania for a period of at least 12 months. The urban population, as well as the female population, are the majority (54.1% and 51.1% respectively).
According to the Romanian National Institute of Statistics, the main cause of this decrease is the negative natural increase, which shows that in 2019 the number of deceased persons exceeded the number of births by 73,630. The second cause of depopulation is emigration. In 2019, the number of emigrants exceeded the number of immigrants by almost 31,000 people. Most emigrants are between 20 and 39 years old, represented by the active population.
