The Size Of The Population Depends On Many Things
How many people will live in a country in the future depends on a few different things. Very important, of course, is how many children are born and how many people die. But an important factor is also, of course, how many people are emigrating and how many people immigrate>. More and more people in Germany don’t like it here anymore and emigrate. To Australia, to Norway, to Sweden, and to many other countries. Other people, on the other hand, want to come to Germany at all costs, such as the many refugees who come to us from Africa. In any case, the experts are sure that in the next 15 years there will be about half a million fewer people living in our country.
The Population Is Not Falling Everywhere
There are some regions in Germany where the population is falling particularly sharply. This is particularly the case in rural regions. On the other hand, there are many cities where the population is rising because more and more people want to live in the city. But there are also Federal states there are differences. Saxony-Anhalt, Thuringia, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and Saarland are particularly hard hit by population loss. In contrast, there will be more people in Berlin, Hamburg, and Bremen, as well as in the states of Bavaria, Baden-Württemberg, Hesse and Schleswig-Holstein.
Explanation Of The Difficult Words:
From emigrate, one speaks when one leaves one’s home country permanently. Emigration can have many reasons. Most Germans emigrate because they get a better job in another country, maybe the weather is nicer there, or maybe they just want to try something new in life again. There are many reasons why people emigrate.
Immigrate is the opposite of emigration and is also called immigration. At the moment, refugees are coming to Germany mainly from Africa, from countries where there is war or where people are starving. Many believe that they will be much better off in Germany than in their home country.
Germany has consisted of 16 Federal states. These are Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, Berlin, Brandenburg, Bremen, Hamburg, Hesse, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate, Saarland, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, Schleswig-Holstein and Thuringia
