Then comes Serbia (-5.3%) and Romania (-5%).

Previous data from Eurostat and INSTAT (for Albania) show that in Albania the reason for the population decline is related to the reduction of natural increase, which although still remains positive and especially the high negative net migration (more people leave than return).

According to Eurostat, the natural increase of the population was 2.3% in January 2020 versus January 1, 2019, or 6.6 thousand births more than deaths, which is the lowest at least since the ’90s, according to other INSTAT data.

While for Serbia the negative population trend is related to the negative natural increase (the country has more deaths and births), while net migration is almost zero. According to Eurostat, Serbia had a 5.3% drop in the natural increase for the period in question.
