KSH: Hungary’s natural decrease moderates in Jan-April
As the number of births declined at a lower rate than that of deaths, the natural decrease of Hungaryʼs population moderated from 20,503 in January–April 2015 to 13,725 persons in the first four months of 2016, which meant a decrease of 33%, according to a first release of data from Hungary’s Central Statistical Office (KSH) today.
In the first four months of 2016, 29,221 children were born, which was 138 (0.5%) lower than the value in January–April 2015, while the number of deaths was 42,946.
The number of marriages during the first four months rose dramatically by 30% as compared to the base period, the rise in February being the most notable, when the adjusted number of marriages exceeded last yearʼs value by 33%.
There were 9 live births and 13.2 deaths per thousand inhabitants, while the number of infant deaths was 4.2 per thousand live births in the first four months of the year, KSH said.
