Denmark has really provided steady figures throughout its history and although the population growth is slow and sometimes negative from year to year, it is normally steady and fairly reliable. The organisation that is Statistics Denmark should therefore show that the population should breach the six million mark for the first time within the next ten years.

## Denmark Population Growth

Unlike some other countries in the world, Denmark has enjoyed a relatively steady growth in population since records began. Back in 1769, it was shown that numbers here had reached 797,584 and by 1787, they had climbed marginally to 841,806.

The population of Denmark had exceeded one million by 1834 when it was claimed that 1,230,964 people were living here. Similar growth continued throughout the 19th century to the point where the Denmark population had climbed to 2,449,540.

That steady but unremarkable increase had generally been the story of Denmark to the point today where it has reached a population of 5,792,318. This population does not include Greenland (56,300) or the Faroe Islands (49,700).

## Denmark Population Projections

Denmark has provided steady figures throughout its history and although the population growth is slow and sometimes negative from year to year, it is normally steady and fairly reliable. The organization that is Statistics Denmark should, therefore, show that the population should breach the six million mark for the first time within the next ten years. These projections believe that the annual growth rate will decrease from 0.38% in 2020 down to 0.19% by 2050. During this same time period the population of Denmark is expected to be 5,796,800 in 2020, 6,024,516 in 2030, 6,192,283 in 2040 and 6,314,402 by 2050.
