Population grew slightly in Q1 thanks to immigration

The population of the Czech Republic grew slightly in the first quarter of the year thanks to immigration. While fewer children were born than in the same period last year, more than 4000 people moved to the country. Most of the immigrants came from Slovakia, Russia, the USA and Ukraine. The country’s population now numbers roughly 10,507,000. The first quarter also saw a year on year decrease in mortalities, marriages, divorces and abortions.
