Straightforward and understandable the country has a high mortality rate coupled with low birth rates and a significant number of immigrants with 8.15 births per 1,000 people the country is struggling to balance with 18 deaths per 1,000 people furthermore Bulgaria holds the record for the highest mortality rate in the

European Union with over 82% of bulgarians dying from circulatory system diseases and cancer Bulgarian doctors have declared for years that smoking and alcohol are the leading causes of death in the country when giving birth Bulgarian women actually have the lowest average age of first child birth compared to other European

Countries however the biggest challenge for this country lies in Immigration more and more bulgarians are leaving their country in 2019 about 40,000 people immigrated from Bulgaria to other countries in search of opportunities this has led to a loss of 10.3% of Bulgaria’s population in the past 12 years what do you think about

The population decline in this country share your thoughts with me number 15 lvia lvia has lost 20% of its population in the past 12 years and it predicted to lose another 40% by around 2100 lvia has made significant progress since leaving the Soviet Union and this has indeed slowed down immigration from

Lva to other countries especially in Western Europe however many lvans still immigrate abroad in hopes of finding new jobs therefore the government has established a trade alliance with Beijing to attract many Chinese people to migrate to this small country in recent years the goal of the Latvian government has been to improve

The country’s economy and thus provide better economic conditions for young people about 14% of the population here is immigrants many of whom are Chinese furthermore lvia is one of the countries with the most significant gender related difference in life expectancy here there is about a 10year difference in life expectancy between

Men and women compared to the EU average difference of 5 years this is due to higher cancer rates and a general lack of understanding of health issues among men in lvia number 14 North Macedonia North cedonia is among the countries with the lowest birth rates in the Balkans at 1.3 children per woman

Falling into the category of nations with shrinking populations this is compounded by economic challenges encouraging migration the flow of young often Highly Educated individuals exacerbates the demographic crisis impacting Economic Development additionally an aging population poses additional challenges to the sustainability of healthare and pension systems the population of North

Macedonia is projected to decrease by1 9% from 2.1 million to 1.9 million from 2020 to 2050 meanwhile North macedonia’s population has decreased by 24.6% since gaining independence in 1991 number 13 mdova this small nation has lost 40% of its population over the past 30 years with the United Nations predicting a

Chiso displaying deserted streets with few illuminated windows at night dilapidated Farms schools and many broken and tattered roofs also indicate sparse or absent populations in these areas number 12 Ukraine it’s easy to understand why many ukrainians leave their country isn’t it on February 24th 2022 Russia’s invasion of Ukrainian territory marked a significant

Escalation in the conflict between these two countries which has been ongoing since 2014 the war has caused the largest Refugee crisis in Europe since the end of World War II however even before the war migration had begun in Ukraine according to data from the state statistic service of Ukraine the country country’s population

Has been declining since 1990 due to prolonged negative birth rates and massive economic migration after the collapse of the Soviet Union ukrainians mainly worked in Russia and after 2010 they mainly went to Russia and Poland where there were liberal migration policies with a birth rate of 9.23 births per 1,000 people

Mortality rates are also high with 14.3 deaths per 1,000 people even before the war forecasts for Ukraine’s population are after the end of the conflict vary but all are extremely pessimistic ranging from 24 to 35 million people and by 2030 the country’s population could be one of the oldest in Europe while

Also bearing a high burden of illness disability post-traumatic stress disorder or depression High mortality rates and fewer births are the main reasons for the sharp population decline from 2010 to 2022 ukrainians decreased by 18.2% and it estimated that there will be fewer than 40.7% ukrainians by 2100

770,000 people over the past decade in terms of population C CA has lost residents not only in rural areas but also in cities making this case particularly unusual compared to neighboring countries this is also due to a lack of affordable housing for the young population according to croan Media

Analysis the job market is insufficient and the lack of housing for young people is the main cause of both immigration and low birth rates however while croci leave more people are being attracted by the prospect of new jobs in tourism in 2023 for the first time in 15 years the

Number of tourists to this country exceeded record levels number 10 Lithuania the population of Lithuania is predicted to decrease by 2 22.1% over the next three decades the population is expected to decrease from 2.7 million to 2.1 million people like Bulgaria the largest population decline in Lithuania is due to mass

Signs of slowing down hungary’s policies aimed at slowing down the population decline are focused on increasing the birth rate to address this issue the government decided to establish state-run fertility support clinics for example in December 2019 prime minister Victor orban’s government announced the purchase of six private specialty in

Vitro fertilization IVF clinics the government controls IVF facilities exempting them from competition restrictions since 2020 the states provide free fertility treatment drugs at many clinics prime minister Orban also outlined tax exemptions proposed loans for families in efforts to boost the birth rate since the summer of 2022 prime minister Orban has banned private

Woman is steadily declining making it one of the countries with a decreasing population this demographic challenge is exacerbated by the immigration of citizens especially towards Western Europe after joining the EU additionally Poland faces an aging population characterized by an increasing number of elderly people and a narrowing population within the

Working age group Poland’s population is predicted to decrease by 1 12.0 0% over the next 30 Years the population will decrease from 37.8 million to 33.3 million low birth rates and continuous imigration are the two main factors contributing to Poland’s population decline number five litah the birth rate in litva is less

Horrifying compared to the countryes seen above however this country has a high mortality rate with 15.6 deaths per 1,000 people experts believe this is mainly due to three factors of obesity alcohol and suicide for every three men in litva one has a serious alcohol problem leading to consequences such as traffic accidents

Decrease by up to 50% in the next 50 years if no measures are taken to counteract this number three Estonia estonia’s population deine is a complex issue rooted in historical challenges and current ones from the Soviet era including low birth rates in Immigration although Estonia has one of

The highest birth rates in Eastern Europe at 1.58 children per woman this rate is still lower than necessary it high immigration rates especially after joining the European Union in 2004 have led to a significant number of young people leaving additionally an increasingly aging population is a growing concern

With the proportion of elderly people exerting increasing pressure on the healthcare and social systems estonia’s population of 1.3 million is predicted to decrease by 1 two .7% to 1.2 million by 2050 compared to other Baltic countries estonia’s population decline rate is relatively slow and stable this is because many foreigners have also

Very high making the country the third largest immigrant community in the world after Bosnia and Herzegovina Guyana poverty Still Remains significant in many places in the country young albanians feel disillusioned about the future and the youth lacks hope that the situation in the country can change entirely opting to immigrate

Along with Bulgaria Ukraine lvia and Lithuania that will lose the most population by 2050 the mortality rate in this country is high but not as high as some countries above Additionally the birth rate is similarly low with 8.74 births per 1,000 people so why is the population declining in Serbia surely it’s because
