Europe: Demography Report

Source: Eurostat

From Population change and age structure:

The current demographic situation in the EU-28 is characterised in general by population growth. However, while the population of the EU-28 as a whole increased in 2013, the population in 13 EU-28 Member States declined.

On 1 January 2014 the population of the EU-28 was estimated at 506.8 million, up by 1.7 million people from 1 January 2013. The growth was faster than the year before, when the population increased by 1.1 million. The number of inhabitants in the EU-28 increased from 406.7 million in 1960 by more than 100 million up to 2014. However, the rate of population growth has been gradually slowing down in recent decades. Between 1994 and 2014, the EU-28 population increased on average by about 1.3 million a year compared to an annual average of around 3.3 million a year in the 1960s.
