Newsroom 03/02/2012 | 12:59

The Romanian population has fallen sharply down to slightly over 19 million people, according to the preliminary results of the census which keeps track of the population and dwellings announced by the National Institute of Statistics.

 Thus, while in 2002 the Romanian population numbered 21,680,974 inhabitants, 10 years later the stable population of Romania fell to 19,043,000.

 Romania is still very much a rural country as nearly half of the population, 8,989,000 still lives in the countryside.

In the future, the population is expected to continue its downward trend as less children are born. However, the standard of living is expected to improve.
