Development of population 2015 - 2024

The figures for 2023 concern the period from 01-01-2023 to 01-01-2024.

Most noticeable:

1. The number of newcomers in 2023, just like in 2022, was almost 90,000.

This means that the inflow remains at its highest level ever. The inflow remained stable, but the outflow decreased. ​

 

2. The inflow from home has increased considerably, while the inflow from abroad has decreased. Nevertheless, more people came to Amsterdam from abroad than from home. ​

 

3. Fewer people left Amsterdam compared to 2022, mainly because departures to the rest of the Netherlands decreased.

         Note: some of the departures to the rest of the Netherlands are foreigners leaving Amsterdam ​

 

4. Inflow from abroad is much greater than departure abroad: Amsterdam is becoming increasingly 'foreign'

 

5. The decline in births continues, as does the decline in natural increase. ​

 

6. The total number of inhabitants will have increased by more than 16,810 in 2023. This is one of the largest increases ever.
