Population of Hungary Falls to 9.58 Million
Hungary's population stood at an estimated 9.58 million at the end of 2023, according to data released by the Central Statistical Office (KSH).

The natural decrease in the population was 42,000 for the year, the difference between 85,200 live births and 127,200 deaths.

The number of live births fell by 3.7% and the fertility rate slipped to 1.5% from 1.52%.

The number of deaths dropped 6.8%. Since it first returned to power in 2010, the Fidesz-led government has enacted measures such as tax cuts for large families (with four or more children) and preferential loans in a bid to turn around the falling population growth.
