Population of Austria by gender 1910-2020

This statistic shows the population of Austria from 1910 until 2020 by gender. The male population drops by 140 thousand between 1910 and 1923 as a result of World War I, however the female population slightly increases, gaining an additional 30 thousand people. Austria was a part of Germany during the Second World War, and the figures for Austria's population are not available for this time, however we can see that the female population increases significantly between 1923 and 1950, whereas the male population drops until the mid 1950s.
After the war, however, we can see that Austria enjoyed continuous growth until the 1980s when the population dipped, due to a reduction in the number of foreign workers coming to the country, and the legalization of abortion and greater access to contraception (there was also a period known as the 'pill-drop-off' in the 1960s, where the birth rate decreased dramatically). By the mid-1980s the population began to grow again, and the male to female ratio is becoming much closer over time, although it has never been as close as it was before the First World War.
