High depopulation of other cities and low population growth of Vilnius city. It has some influence for the perspective i guess.What's up with all the talks about Vilnius' high population growth?
I think people should stop pulling ideas out of their asses :II think that it's much easier to guess which city will have the biggest population growth in comming 10 years (Vilnius)
hno: hno: hno:And the only reason Vilnius is showing "population growth" is because your city area is HUGE HUGE HUGE HUGE, encompassing the outer areas where this suburbanization is leading all baltic capital populations, in Tallinn and Riga were "loosing" people to suburbanization, while in Vilnius this isnt practically an issue!
Actually it's said that Estonia won't have a stabile positive natural birth rate before 2040-2050, because the number of children per woman is at the moment around 1,5, but it has to be 2,1. Simple math tells you, why.Estonia had positive population change in July and August 2006. This year the population change of Estonia became positive already in June. If the positive trend continues, that is growing birth-rate and sustained positive immigration, then in about one or two years Estonia will have annual growth.
Main Social and Economic Indicators of Estonia, July 2007:
Sub-replacement level TFR does not necessarily imply decline, otherwise Finland - and just about every European country - would have a declining population. Population change depends also on age structure of the country, which in Estonia's case is not all that bad, as you guys had a comparetively high TFR still in late 80s. Secondly increased life span plays a role as well, Japan being a case in point. Thirdly, TFR is a bit misleading term, anyway and causes people to perceive the situation as quite a bit worse than it actually is. In terms of crude birthrate, Estonia is now on-par with Finland and the Netherlands, for instance, and only slightly below Sweden and Denmark, and improving at a pretty remarkable rate.Actually it's said that Estonia won't have a stabile positive natural birth rate before 2040-2050, because the number of children per woman is at the moment around 1,5, but it has to be 2,1.
