Refugee influx helps halt decline in Germany's population (Alberto Nardelli, 6 January 2016, The Guardian)

The population growth has been particularly concentrated among those of working age. The number of people employed in Germany hit 43 million in 2015, according to data released by Destatis, the German statistics office, on Tuesday. The figure represents the highest number of people in work since German reunification. Meanwhile, the number of unemployed people has dropped below 2 million for the first time since the fall of the Berlin Wall. [...]

Net migration has exceeded 300,000 every year since 2011, hitting 676,730 in 2014, according to data published by Germany's federal office for migration and refugees.

By contrast, in 2014 for example, 714,927 births and 868,373 deaths were recorded.
