Recent statistics from the Czech Statistical Office (CZSO) show an increase in the country’s population by 13,900 inhabitants, between the months of January and September 202o. CZSO attributes the increase in the country’s population to international migration.
The population number in the Czech Republic rose by 13,900 to 10.71 million in the first nine months of the year, largely due to migration, according to the data released by the Czech Statistical Office (CSU) today.
The number of newborn babies diminished by over 2,600 to 83,300. The number of immigrants reached 16,700, whilst 10,100 people emigrated from the Czech Republic.
According to the CZSO, flows of both immigrants and emigrants were higher in the year-on-year comparison.
According to the Ministry of Health, 9,600 people with proven coronavirus infection have died since the epidemic began in March this year.
“Despite COVI-19 is the main reason for the increased mortality in the Czech Republic, the data in October also show an increase in mortality for different reasons,” said Jan Blatný (ANO).
Most people immigrated to the Czech Republic from Ukraine, Slovakia, and Russia – trends similar to the previous years. On the other hand, the number of British, Poles, and Germans living in the Czech Republic decreased.
