(AOF) – If recent demographic trends continue, France’s population would increase to 69.3 million inhabitants in 2044, said INSEE. It would then decrease to 68.1 million inhabitants in 2070, ie 700,000 more than in 2021. Until 2035, the population would continue to increase by 116,000 people on average per year, from fact of a positive natural balance which would be added to the migratory surplus.
From 2035, deaths would be more numerous than births, the natural balance would then become negative. Until 2044, the migratory balance would compensate for this natural deficit and the population would therefore continue to increase slightly.
By 2070, the age pyramid would be greatly modified. The number of people aged 60 to 74 is expected to remain stable, that of those aged 75 and over is expected to grow by 5.7 million, while that of those under 60 will decline by 5 million. Driven by the increase in those aged 75 and over, the share of those aged 65 or over in the population would increase sharply, from 21% to 29%. It would thus grow at the same rate as in the past, between 1972 and 2021.
