Germany’s population has contracted slightly for the first time in nearly a decade because immigration shrank as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, official data showed Tuesday.

AP reports:

Some 83.1 million people lived in Germany at the end of June, with the population declining by 40,000, or 0.05%, in the year’s first half, according to the Federal Statistical Office.

The last decline was in the second half of 2010. Since then, the population had increased steadily — most sharply in the second half of 2015, when the influx of migrants to Europe caused an increase of 717,000 people.
