Residential population of the state of Berlin 2019, by age group

The largest age groups among Berlin’s residential population were 65 years and older, and 45 to 60 years. The former was actually the most represented age group in the German capital. This reflects the general picture of the ageing population in the country. The age group with the least number of residents was 18 to 20 years.

Slowly growing population

Berlin’s residential population has been growing in recent years, though at a slow pace. Generally, the urban population in Germany has been increasing, with over 18.7 million people living in cities. Berlin does not have the most expensive rent space in Germany, with an average of 11.7 euros per square meter (compared to Munich’s 17.3 euros), which could be a draw for younger age groups moving to the capital. On the other hand, just as in the rest of the country, the city’s age group structure is affected by a struggling birth rate.

2020s uncertain

Based on recent figures, Berlin’s total population was almost three million. Germany’s population count currently stands at almost 82.9 million and is forecast to decrease rather than increase in the 2020s.
