8 901 064 people lived in Austria on 1 January 2020, according to the final results of Statistics Austria. Compared to the beginning of 2019, this represents an increase of 42 289 inhabitants (+0.48%). Population growth thus was slightly higher than in the year before: In 2018, the Austrian population had increased by only 0.41% (+36 508 people). About 96% of Austria's population growth in 2019 was due to international migration gains of 40 613 people (see press release on migration). However, natural population growth also contributed to the overall increase (see press release on births and deaths).
