The World Population Day and Slovenia

Slovenia’s population is less than 0.03% of the world’s population. In the past 50 years Slovenia’s population grew by about 370,000 or a little more than a fifth and in the past ten years, it grew by about 50,000.

In Slovenia, the total fertility rate was decreasing until 2003, at which point it was only 1.20 children per woman, but has since then risen slowly to 1.61 last year.

According to the EUROPOP2019 projections, the population of Slovenia is expected to increase until approximately 2024, when it is expected to be 2,116,000, and then start to slowly decrease. In 2060, Slovenia is expected to have fewer than 2 million inhabitants.
