Germany is seeing an increase in immigration from other European Union countries.

The population in Germany is growing despite a low birthrate.  They are seeing an increase in immigration from other European Union countries.  For a third straight year, more people came to the Germany than left it in 2012.  This development balances out the natural population decline from deaths and fewer births of about 200,000 a year.

 

If the trend continues, population forecasts will have to be corrected upwards significantly. On average, immigrants are younger than Germans. And they are more likely to have a secondary education than they used to be. After they come, most look for jobs in the major cities and their surroundings.
