The population of Russia continues to decline
The permanent population of Russia in 2019 decreased by 2% - by 35 thousand 622 people compared to the beginning of 2018. As of January 1, 2020, the population of the Russian Federation amounted to 146 million 745,1 thousand people.
As noted in the preliminary assessment of the Federal State Statistics Service, Russia's population is declining for the second year in a row. In 2018, the number decreased by 99,7 thousand people, while until 2017, the figure, on the contrary, grew.
The published document provides a preliminary estimate that does not take into account the natural growth and balance of migration, so the data may change. Nevertheless, according to the forecast of the department, until 2026 the number of inhabitants of Russia will decrease on an increasing basis.
