Key figures on the population of the Netherlands.

The following information is available:

  • Population by sex;
  • Population by marital status;
  • Population by age (groups);
  • Population by origin;
  • Private households;
  • Persons in institutional households;
  • Population growth;
  • Population density.

CBS is in transition towards a new classification of the population by origin. Greater emphasis is now placed on where a person was born, aside from where that person’s parents were born. The term ‘migration background’ is no longer used in this regard. The main categories western/non-western are being replaced by categories based on continents and a few countries that share a specific migration history with the Netherlands. The new classification is being implemented gradually in tables and publications on population by origin.

Data available from: 1950 Figures on population by origin are only available from 2022 at this moment. The periods 1996 through 2021 will be added to the table at a later time.

Status of the figures: All the figures are final.

Changes as of 9 August 2023: Final figures with regard to population growth for 2022 and final figures of the population on 1 January 2023 have been added.

Changes as of 26 April 2023: None, this is a new table. This table succeeds the table Population; key figures; 1950-2022. See section 3. The following changes have been implemented compared to the discontinued table:

  • The topic folder 'Population by migration background' has been replaced by 'Population by origin';
  • The underlying topic folders regarding 'first and second generation migration background' have been replaced by 'Born in the Netherlands' and 'Born abroad';
  • The origin countries Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Turkey have been assigned to the continent of Asia (previously Europe).

When will new figures be published? In the last quarter of 2024 final figures with regard to population growth for 2023 and final figures of the population on 1 January 2024 will be added.
