Population of Hungary: Transleithania 1850-1910
Hungary: Transleithania was the Hungarian-ruled section of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, which controlled much of Central Europe from 1867 to 1918. This graphic shows the total population of Hungary: Transleithania from 1850 until 1910, just before the outbreak of World War I. As we can see from the graph, the population grows rather gradually throughout this 60 year period. The population begins at 13.2 million people in 1850, and then rises gradually to 20.9 million in 1910, just 4 years before the empire declares war on Serbia, which would develop into the First World War. As mentioned, the population rises gradually, although it does slow quite noticeably between 1869 and 1880, this is because of the data collecting methods of the time, as the earlier entries did not include military personnel. This also influences the data relating to gender, as the balance between the number of men and women fluctuates throughout this time. From 1880 onwards, the population of Transleithania enjoyed healthy growth due to increased industrialization and standard of living.
