Germany - Statistics & Facts

Published by Aaron O'Neill,
Germany’s population growth has been decreasing over the past 10 years. The average number of children born by German women has increased slightly over the past decade but still remains low. The total number of live births has hardly changed year on 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.

Germany has one of the largest gross domestic products (GDP) worldwide, only surpassed by the United States, China, and Japan. Germany's gross domestic product per capita is expected to grow again after a slight slump in 2015 due to the Eurozone Crisis, and the country’s average unemployment rate has significantly decreased since its 2005 peak.

The estimated national debt of Germany amounted to roughly 65 percent of the country’s total gross domestic product in 2017, placing it seventh among industrial and emerging countries ranked by their debt to GDP ratios. Based on a ranking from 2017, Germany was one of 11 countries in the European Union with a positive budget balance and reported the highest surplus as well.
