Czech Population Grows Mainly Due to Migration from Ukraine

The population of Czechia increased by 54,700 to 10.88 million in the first three quarters of this year, according to data published by the Czech Statistics Office on Tuesday.

The increase is due to foreign migration, especially from Ukraine.

From January to the end of September, 116,700 people immigrated to Czechia, while 48,600 people left the country. The figures include Ukrainians granted temporary protection due to Russian military aggression.

According to the freshly released data, the first six months of 2022 saw 69,200 births, which is a drop of 11 percent year-on-year.

Moreover, there was a decrease of over 10 percent in marriages compared to the previous year, accompanied by fewer deaths and divorces.

Between January and September, 116,700 people moved to the country from abroad, while 48,600 people moved out.

Two-fifths of those who left were registered in September, reflecting the conclusion of the stay for individuals with temporary protection who failed to comply with the deadline for visa sticker affixation to their travel documents.

Czechia experienced a net loss of 13,300 residents through natural channels, marking an increase of 2,800 from the same period last year.

In the first three quarters of the year, 41,500 couples got married, a 14 percent decrease compared to the same period in 2022. Marriages declined for both single and divorced individuals at a similar rate, as highlighted by Michaela Němečková from the CSO’s demographic statistics department.

Year-on-year, there were 300 fewer divorces, with authorities dissolving 14,400 marriages.

These population shifts shed light on the evolving demographic landscape of the Czech Republic, with migration playing a pivotal role in shaping the nation’s dynamics.
