Population


In the period 1998 to 2014 the overall population size remained between 56 and 57,000 people. For the past couple of yesrs the population count has been declining and today 55,992 lives in Greenland. Of these, nearly 6000 are born outside Greenland. In Denmark today there live 15,000 persons born in Greenland. This is 3,000 more than 10 years ago. Around 800 children are Born every year, and around the 500 dies. This leaves the Natural increase at 300 per year, which would lead to population increase over time. When this has not happened, it is because that every year more people migrate than immigrate. In round figures, one can say that the entire population growth over the past 10 years has moved to Denmark, as the average net emigration can be estimated to 300
