It was officially 9.981.799 at the end of November (the last monthly statistics available), but the population clock at the Statistics page now has it at 9.999.422 as of today.

Sweden grew by 136.000 people in the year to November, or 1.4%

21% of the increase is because of natural increase, 79% because of an immigration surplus.

Sweden's population is expected to hit the ten million mark this week, new figures show.

More specifically this coming Friday, according to the number crunchers at Statistics Sweden, who are using their "population clock" to keep track of the multiplying Swedes in real-time.

Only a few weeks ago the authority thought that the ten million mark would be hit in mid-February, but the clock appears to be ticking faster and faster on the home stretch.

At the time of publication, Wednesday noon, the population of Sweden is 9,998,812. It is impossible to know the exact time of the day Sweden gets its ten millionth resident or who that person is.

Statistics Sweden explains on its website: "It may have been the newborn child, the person who got a residence permit or the one who returned to Sweden after a few years abroad."

In 2010, Sweden was predicted to reach ten million in 2021, but the population has increased faster than expected. Between 2010 and 2015 the population grew by some four percent a year, behind only Luxembourg in the EU, and far above the EU's average of one percent, the TT news agency reports.

There are two reasons behind the increase: the birth rate and immigration.

"The main reason the population is increasing faster than what was thought a few years ago is because immigration was at an historic high and since then it has increased even more. Population prognoses normally expect that the immigration surplus will go down to the historic average level. That has however not happened yet," Tomas Johansson, population analyst at Statistics Sweden, explained to The Local.

The birth surplus, or the number of newborns minus the number of deaths, has been at around 20,000-25,000 for the past couple of years. The immigration surplus meanwhile has ranged from 45,000 and 78,000, mainly because of increased immigration while emigration has remained relatively stable.

 "Around three fourths of the population growth can be explained by the immigration surplus. Therefore you can say, somewhat simplistically, that immigration causes the high population growth," said Johansson.

Sweden is currently expected to reach a population of 11 million in 2024 and 13 million in 2060.

And not only that:

The Netherlands has also passed a milestone last year: 17 million in March.

The Dutch are also growing at a healthy pace: +0.7% to November, to 17.087.536 people (up by 112.000 compared with November 2015).

Bloody hell. The Netherlands must be one of the most densely populated countries in the world let alone Europe

And at the same time, Southern Europe is seeing a fast decrease in population, particularly Greece and Portugal.

In France, the official figures have been released a few days ago:
Total population: 66.991 million
+265,000 (0,4%)
Natural balance: +198,000 (the lowest since 1976)
Migratory balance: +67,000

Number of births: 785,000, down for the second year in a row, the lowest since 1999.
Fertility rate: 1.93 (2 in 2014)

For the past 2 years, Austria had a bigger migratory balance than France, despite France being 8x as big.

In 2015, the migration balance was around 113.000 and in 2014 it was around 72.000 people.

That is because Austria is not only a magnet for asylum seekers from the Middle-East and North Africa, but also a magnet for people from other EU-countries (mostly Germany and Eastern Europe).

The begin-2017 figures are out next month, but based on the first 3 quarters, I expect the population to have increased by between 85.000-100.000 people last year (+1.0 to 1.1%).

In 2015, growth was 1.4% - one of the highest rates since WW2.

Also, the recent wave of immigration has also reversed Austria's declining birth rate:

It seems likely that 2016 had around 87.000 births, which is 12.000 more than 10 years ago.

The birth rate rose from around 9/1000 to 10/1000 now, while deaths remained largely stable at 9/1000.

A few years ago, Austria had slightly more deaths than births, now births will likely outnumber deaths by around 10.000

That might be why they trying to make French come, I've been recently contacted to work in those both countries without I applied to anything. It came from a recruitment company in tie with an EU agency, apparently an EU campaign for developping IT jobs is going on, or something.

More seriously about Portugal, would be interesting to see if the fiscal policy they set for French retired people would have any a little significant demographical impact.

As to Sweden, each time i hear about populations of countries like Sweden, my knee jerking thought is 'heck, not even Paris', which is part of what makes comparison with such countries sometimes falling apart maybe.
