Europe Population

It has been estimated that the Europe population is about 830.4 million. This constitutes to about 11% of the world population. The Europe population growth is relatively slower. The Europe population figures depend on the precise geographical extent of Europe. EU had a population of a little more than 400 million in the year 2008, while about 90 million people belonged to the non-EU countries situated in Europe. Europe earlier used to include about 25% of the world population and the population has only grown since but due to the rapid increase in population of Asian and African countries, the percentage has come down to about 12%. This share is estimated to fall about another 5 % in the next 40 years.  Europe population has a high life expectancy and low birth rate due to which many European countries might have to deal with declining population over the years.

The living standards have improved a lot and better social institutions have come about in Russia due to which it is expected to grow and stabilize in the next few years.  It has been observed that the Europe population is fast losing its faith in religion in support of secularism. Atheism is on the rise with many people admitting a non-belief in god. Church attendance has also declined.

The biggest ethnic group present in Europe is of the Russians with a population of about 90 million people in the European parts of Russia. It is followed by the Germans with a population of 80 million and the French whose population is estimated to be about 65 million. About 3% to 5% of the European population consists of non-European immigrant groups like the Africans and the Asians. German is the most commonly used language of the Europe population. It is followed by French and English.

    The european population is still low. The natality is also low, at least at the moment. That is because of the financial crisis. Let’s hope we’ll get out of it asap, for the sake of the europe population! :D

    The european population is diverse. This is what I like most about it. You can find different races and different kind of people.

    I also consider the european population is the most intelligent in the world. On the 2nd place would be the asians.

  3. Lange   February 6, 2010 5:16 am

    Jeniffer, the european population is not that low. It is at a medium level. And from my point of view, it will only get better. That happens thanks to the good living standards. So more people to come!!11

    A quite interesting article. Informs us about the european population. Is there any chance to see more detailed articles about the europe population? It would surely be nice.

  5. Stan   February 8, 2010 1:16 pm

    Good to know these facts. What about the european population’s education level? Are the europeans more educated than asians? In comparison with USA, I know europe is way better. :D

    It’s a good thing that the europe population is not growing so fast. I don’t see any good thing in a fast growing population.

    The european population also seems to be more educated. We have lots of scientists. We also have some of the best schools in the world. GG European population!!

    I am glad of a thing. If the european population is, indeed, losing faith in religion, it would be glad. Religion is the one which started wars, killed people etc. We don’t need someone to trust in. So if the europe population would stop having faith, it would be an advantage.

    the europe population is usually happy. the living standards have increased for the european population. this happens thanks to the well paid jobs and the educational systems. europe has also a good climate, so the european population feels comfortable. :D

  9. annamay   June 11, 2010 2:23 pm

    i thought the uk had the same population as europe but it says in the text up above that europe has a bigger population is that right or wrong email me back please because i want to know the answer.

    If Western European countries don’t wake up and see the genocide against their population committed by immigration of non-Europeans, it’ll be the end of Europe, like Brazil for example, one of the most racially mixed, corrupt and criminal countries in the world, look up Rio de Janeiro. It’s all really simple:

    “Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.”

    “The Netherlands and Belgium are more crowded than Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.”

    “Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.”

    “What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?”

    “How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?”

    “And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?”

    “But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.”

    “They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.”

    “Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.”

    Charles Martel it sounds like your insecure because you know that racism is dying and equality is growing. And you talk of “non blacks into black countries” i laugh at this statement your clearly someone who does not know their own history.

    How do you think America was formed or do you believe those “non blacks” wrong whites went to that country and wiped out the natives that is the meaning of genocide. Or do you believe “non whites” originated from their same goes for Australia where the natives were subjected to real genocide unable to assimilate because they were wiped out.

    You probably forgot about that though but oh i forgot im supposed to feel sorry for the white race because they are being subjected to genocide through the form of immigration and assimilation.

    And the blacks who are in America i suppose they walked themselves over to America. Incorrect they were taken their so do some research on your history before you speak.

    And i think its time europe gave back to the countries it colonised and took resources from to build its economy i think a little immigration of blacks is in order i mean they were able to benefit its economy from free resources from its colonies now those people want to benefit too.

    Also this is one world that nobody owns you have the right to travel where ever you want there is one race the human race and everyone dies so stop harping on about visual differences and do something positive with your life!

    charles martel.u are absolutly right, they are killing th e whit epopulation all over europe, london is turning into an african city colony, natality has droped betwen many white people, and most white womans are now going for the black guys due to the stuped equlity regime that results in a demorilizing and discrimination of white men, and etc. this feminism has to end, the order of things i s all wrong.

  13. tyraneztherabbit   September 29, 2010 7:41 pm

    Anthony – do you even read your own posts?

    Here he is, pointing out a CURRENT attempt at Genocide.

    While YOU are trying to JUSTIFY that Genocide!

    Nobody is flooding Asian countries with non-Asians and saying the world belongs to everybody.

    On one hand you think it was wrong for whites to move to an American continent, because the American Indians already lived there.

    Then you say its: this is one world that nobody owns you have the right to travel where ever you want there is one race the human race.

    You don’t see your own contradictions?

    How can the white race be so guilty of things as to Justify its GENOCIDE, if you claim race does not exist?

    What you are is a person who looks WHITE, and yet believes his own race is evil, and deserves to lose its existence.

    Charles Martel here has said NOTHING that says anything bad about another group of people.

    You think this current Genocide is a good thing, and you try to Justify it.

    It is YOU who are HATEFUL. Obviously.

    Charles Martel is NOT the one here advocating or justifying Genocide.

    You are however.

    American education isn’t that bad, especially in college.
    In America, advanced students have the same opportunities to take advanced classes like European students.
    However, many Americans don’t think education is important, so their children consider school stupid and take education for granted.
    Still, the TOP students in Europe, Asia, and the United States have equal test scores.
    But, Europe and Asia are producing more TOP students.
    The United States simply doesn’t put enough emphasis on education. Parents that know education is important raise educated, smart children. But parents who don’t care about education raise ignorant red necks that ruin America.
    All I’m saying is that Asians or Europeans aren’t smarter than Americans, because TOP students have the same scores. Its that sadly America doesn’t produce enough top students.

    Europe is a very strict country. I’ve read up on it and the people there have orders and keep them.

  16. Larry   December 16, 2010 7:33 am

    According to your numbers the population of Europe doubled from 400 to 800 million to two years.

    Were you educated in Europe?

  17. JIm   December 16, 2010 9:02 am

    Larry, where were you educated ? U.S. ?
    Do you know what E.U. stands for ? Do you know that at first this article talks about Europe population and later about E.U. population?

  18. Paulette   December 31, 2010 11:44 am

    When you look at Europe as a whole, it does not seem to be very populated with the numbers above. While 830 million is a large number it just seems like Europe should have more people. But at least the country is diversified. There seems to be a good mix of people in Europe.

  19. Paulie   January 20, 2011 10:08 am

    I have seen how diversified Europe is. The have a good population, but Europe is pretty big when you compare the numbers of the population to the map size. I agree that there is a very good mix of ethnic groups in Europe.

  20. Hilda   February 27, 2011 3:22 am

    I hadn’t known the fact that Europe population constitutes just 11% of the world population. I thought that Europe population is larger.
    I also hadn’t known that German is the most spoken language by the Europe population. I consider this almost impossible. I thought English is most commonly.

  21. Attila   March 12, 2011 7:59 am

    Well Actually i would say that if the outsiders that live in Europe would move out, The 40million Muslims and i don’t know the Black peoples population, Any Asian and any South american, Turkey and Albania And half of Yugoslavian countries do not count , That makes the European population fall down to 400Million

  22. caetano cesar fernandes   July 30, 2011 10:21 am

    I am sorry to say that Europe in 30 years will be overrun by Islam.And once that happens there will be no peace.Only option left is allow the christians from around the world whether from asia, africa,latin america,to come and settle and have a decent living.Why have you forgotten them as it is you’ll who showed them the way and the truth. i.e. jesus.Believe in him and Iam sure peace will be upon everyone.
