Population change by component

Components of population change

From a demographic perspective, Austria’s population growth can be attributed first and foremost to a positive net migration (balance of immigration and emigration). In comparison, the natural increase (balance of births and deaths) contributes relatively little to overall population growth.

Latest annual results

In 2020, Austria’s population increased by about +0.36% (31 600 people). Population growth thus was a bit lower than in the year before (2019: +42 289 people or + 0.48%) and resulted exclusively from net immigration from abroad of +40 064 people. The birth balance, however, was negative due to the sharp increase in the number of deaths in 2020 (-7 996 people) and significantly dampened overall population growth.

Even though all federal territories (Länder) experienced a population growth in 2020, marked differences were observed in the composition of the population gain: In Salzburg, Tyrol, Vorarlberg and Vienna, the population increase was the result of net-migration gains and a surplus of births over deaths. In contrast, there was a surplus of deaths over births in Burgenland, Carinthia, Lower Austria, Upper Austria and Styria combined with positive net migration gains which resulted in positive rates of population growth, also in those regions.
