Number of young people in danger of diminishing considerably due to the decrease in birth rate
16 Nov 2018
According to Statistics Finland's latest population projection, there would be 760,000 persons aged under 15 in Finland in 2030, if the birth rate remains at the current level. In the 2050s the number would already drop under 700,000 young people. In Finland the number of persons aged under 15 has last been this low at the end of the 1870s, when Finlands population was less than two million. In the 1970s there were still one million persons aged under 15 in Finland.

Description: Population projections describe future population developments. Statistics Finland’ population projections are so-called demographic trend calculations, which calculate the future population for a given area assuming that the development that has taken place in its population in recent years continues unchanged. A by-product of projection calculations by municipality is a so-called self-sufficiency estimate, which describes how the population would develop if there was no migration.
