The European Demographic Data Sheet 2020 reviews, explores and visualises recent population trends in 45 European countries. The data sheet also provides a snapshot of the current research at the Wittgenstein Centre for Demography and Global Human Capital and collaborating researchers, with the 2020 issue focused on measuring and assessing education, well-being and internal migration and examining recent trends in fertility and mortality. The online version (www.populationeurope.org) provides an expanded selection of maps, ranking tables, as well as theme-focused texts and figures.
