The Federal Statistics Office reported that Germany’s population reached its highest record.  The striking record of 82.8million people living in Germany increased so much due to the arrival of immigrants. At the end of 2016 there was around 600,000 people living in Germany from 2015.

The report also stated that if it wasn’t for the arrival of the immigrants, the population in general would have decreased.  The record would have remained the same with the highest of 82.5million people in 2002.  Many immigrants came to the country due to the conflicts in the Middle East.  Later, in 2016 another the number of people that migrated was much higher than the ones departed.

In addition to the above, in 2016 the birth rates were even higher than in 2015.  On the other hand, the death rate remained constant throughout the recent years.
