KSH: Hungary’s population decreases more slowly in Jan-Feb
The Hungarian population decreased moderately in the first two months of this year with 14,843 births, or 0.5% more than during the same period last year, and 21,588 deaths, representing a decrease of 18% over the same period a year ago, according to a report published by the Hungarian Central Statistical Office (KSH) today.
The natural decrease in population for January-February was 6,745 persons, or 4,821 lower than in the same period of 2015, KSH reported.
The modest increase in the number of births, by 70, in the first two months of the year was due in part to the leap-year effect, KSH noted.
According to KSH, there were 9.2 live births and 13.4 deaths per thousand inhabitants, while the number of infant deaths was 4.0 per thousand live births in the first two months of the year.
