Bulletin of Central and Eastern Europe – Puls of the region: Demographic Situation in EU8+2 countries Dr. Katarzyna Gmaj

The region of Central and Eastern Europe faces similar demographic challenges as the Western Europe. Both regions are characterized by low fertility rates that are not sufficient to reach the replacement fertility rate. Thus, both regions experience population ageing. The latter phenomenon is a consequence of the demographic transition, that is, the societies’ transition from the type characterized by high mortality and fertility to a model with low mortality and low fertility.
