Germany’s general population growth has been decreasing over the past 10 years, while the average number of children born by German women has remained steady over the past decade. Consequently, the total number of live births has hardly changed year over year. After a decade of decreasing numbers, the total population of Germany seems to increase again and amounted to more than 82 million by the end of 2015.
As of 2016, Germany has one of the largest gross domestic products worldwide, only surpassed by the United States, China and Japan. Additionally, Germany is ranked amongst all countries with the largest GDP based on their purchasing power parity in the same year. Compared to 2016, Germany is expected to see a rise in its GDP in 2017, and its gross domestic product per capita is expected to grow again after a slight slump in 2015. The country’s average unemployment rate has significantly decreased over the last ten years as well.
