Luxembourg Population 2017

585,287

Luxembourg's population increased rapidly through the 20th century due to immigration from Belgium, Italy, France, Germany and Portugal. At the 2001 census, the country had 59,000 Portuguese residents. As of 2014, it's estimated that 55% of the population is comprised of Luxembourgers and 45% of foreign nationality. Most foreigners in Luxembourg are from EU countries, and many are asylum seekers from Eastern Europe, particularly new republics that emerged from the former Yugoslavia. These immigrants have increased the young population in the country, and the birth rate. Immigrants now account for half of all births in Luxembourg.
