The number of individuals living in Germany developed by around 200,000 year-on-year, as indicated by the underlying evaluation by the statistics office.
Net migration was evaluated at somewhere in the range of 300,000 and 350,000 of every 2019 after near 400,000 in the earlier year. That denotes a decay for the fourth back to back year, the statistics office included.
More than a million people escaping war and poverty in the Middle East, Africa, and the past have rushed to Germany since Chancellor Angela Merkel opened Germany's borders to them in 2015. A large number of them have been pulled in by Germany's powerful economy, its moderately liberal shelter laws and liberal arrangement of advantages.
