The population of the Netherlands grew by 39 thousand in Q3 2020. In Q2, during the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic, the number of inhabitants was still slightly down. The population grew less rapidly than one year previously, when 57 thousand inhabitants were added in the third quarter. This is evident from provisional figures released by Statistics Netherlands (CBS).



In Q3, the number of immigrants was 29.6 thousand higher than the number of emigrants. In addition, births exceeded deaths by 9.5 thousand. Natural population growth was still negative in the previous month, with more deaths than births. The migration balance was low.

A total of 54 thousand inhabitants were added during the first nine months of this year, just over half the number in the same period last year.
