NOTHING LIKE A RECESSION...:

Record Year for Births in Iceland (Iceland Review, 12/27/09)

The recent drop in population can be traced to immigrants with foreign citizenship leaving the country. Nearly 3,100 such individuals have left but Icelanders have increased by about 936 at the same time.

This developement with Icelandic citizens is surprizing because 1,949 more individuals left the country than emigrated to the country. This means that the natural increase of the population, i.e. births exceeding deaths, is the major factor for the increase.

It is thus likely that 2009 will be a record year for births in the history of Iceland.
