The German statistical office has also published the country's detailed population figures as of Jan. 1, 2014.

On January 1, 2014, the population of Germany was 80,767,463. The population of Germany grew by +243,800 people (+0.30%) in 2013, thanks to very high immigration. Super low fertility means the population is aging fast though.

Population less than 20 y/o on Jan. 1, 2014:
- France: 16,192,070 (French citizens: 15,398,658)
- UK: 15,192,650 (on July 1, 2013)
- Germany: 14,636,440 (German citizens: 13,664,669)
- Italy: 11,310,660 (Italian citizens: 10,124,273)
- Spain: 9,206,815 (Spanish citizens: 8,288,936)

Women between the ages of 20 and 40:
- Germany: 10,031,348 (German citizens: 8,570,577)
- UK: 8,904,939 (on July 1, 2013)
- France: 8,526,880 (French citizens: 7,808,914)
- Italy: 7,685,833 (Italian citizens: 6,586,273)
- Spain: 6,603,937 (Spanish citizens: 5,543,508)

We can see that France, despite having less women between the ages of 20 and 40 than Germany and the UK, manages to have more births than these two countries. The comparison between the population under 20 y/o of Italy and the UK is also pretty enlightening.

Germany is getting crazy high immigration right now.

But this is a temporary stopgap. There won't always be such a large economic gap between European neighbors, nor will there always be the political environment for open immigration.

Germany needs a higher birthrate or it will shrink, as it already does in years without ridiculous immigration numbers.

Exodus Campaign From Israel to Berlin, Germany
New York Times

Israelis have for years been drawn to Berlin’s cosmopolitan flair, vibrant arts scene and advanced public transportation. There are already several places in the city where one can have authentic hummus, and there is a bimonthly Hebrew-language magazine. But a Facebook post that went viral this month, a photograph of a supermarket receipt showcasing the low price in Berlin of a beloved chocolate-pudding snack, has revived a raw debate over the meaning of out-migration.
