EU registers more deaths than births in 2015
More people died in the EU than were born during 2015, EU statistical office Eurostat said on Friday. It is the first time the EU has recorded a "negative natural change" of its population. The low birth rates were, however, offset by net migration. Total EU population was estimated at 510.1 million on 1 January this year, compared with 508.3 million a year earlier.
