If the current demographic trend continues, the percentage of Europeans in the world’s population could fall from the current six to four percent, said the vice president of the European Commission responsible for demography, Dubravka Šuica.

“If this trend of births and deaths continues, Europe will be home to only four percent of the world’s population, which is worrying”, said Dubravka Šuica, who took part in the Conference on the Future of Europe at the European Parliament last weekend.

She emphasized that concrete measures of demographic renewal are the sole responsibility of member states.

Šuica submitted a report stating that by 2070, the average life expectancy of women will be 90 years, compared to today’s 83.7, and for men 86 years against today’s 78.2.

Moreover, 30 percent of the European population will then be over 65, compared to 20 percent in 2019. Octogenarians will make up 13 percent compared to the current six percent.
