Indicatori demografici

Demographic indicators

During the course of 2010, continued population growth was mostly due to the migration balance, which once again was extremely positive while the natural population balance was negative. The population showed a further increase of 261,000 units for a rate of 4.3 per thousand inhabitants, summing to a total of 60,601,000 residents as of the end of 2010. There were fewer deaths and births compared to 2009.

For the forth consecutive year, the natural dynamic (difference between births and deaths) registered a negative balance of -30,200 units. The estimated number of births was 557,000 units, resulting in a birth rate of 9.2 per thousand residents. There were about 12,200 fewer births than in 2009. In 2010, the average number of children per woman (TFR – total fertility rate) was 1.40, which is just under the 1.41 of 2009.
