Population growth in Iceland 2008-2018

The population of Iceland grew by two percent in 2018 compared to the previous year. All in all, since 2010 the population of Iceland slowly increased. The main reason was not due to child birth, as the numbers of 0 to 19 year olds remained rather constant the last ten years. By and large, a main reason seemed to be the increased immigration to Iceland. The main countries of origin for newcomers moving to Iceland in 2018, were Poland, Lithuania and Romania.
