Baku-APA. The population of the 28-nation European Union(EU)was estimated at 507.4 million on Jan. 1, 2014, up from 505.7 million a year ago, the EU statistical office Eurostat said on Thursday, APA reports quoting ITAR-TASS.

The population increase is due to a natural increase of 80,000 and a net migration of 700,000, while the remainder is due to statistical adjustments.

As a long-term trend, the population of the EU countries has increased by around 100 million since 1960, from 407 million to 507 million, Eurostat added.

In 2013, the population increased in 15 member states and decreased in 13. The largest increases due to natural change and net migration were observed in Luxembourg, followed by Malta, Sweden, Austria, Britain and Denmark.
