In 2022, Tampere will grow its population by about 5,000 people.

population Tampere’s population increased by 4,837 to 249,060 last year due to increased immigration.

Johanna Ahlgren Holappathe head of the information service of the city of Tampere said on Friday Press release Population growth in the 2020s could exceed projections if immigration into densely populated areas of the region continues at the same level.

This positive development is due to gains from internal migration and migration, as births fell below deaths for the first time in 30 years.

The City of Tampere has devised a demographic plan that reflects projected and desired population growth to 2040. Ahlgrén-Holappa said the plan differs from official population projections in that it incorporates target-oriented elements that local decision-makers can influence. Includes intra-city movement flows, inbound movement from other municipalities, and planned housing construction.

The plan suggests that the city will reach 300,000 people by the end of 2040 as a result of particularly strong growth (30%) in the city’s western and southern neighborhoods.

The population aged 85 and over is set to double what it is today, with a relative increase in the oldest age group expected. However, the largest absolute increase is expected to occur in the working-age population.

Due to low fertility rates, the number of children and young people is expected to grow only slowly, with the number of children in grades 1 to 6 of primary education declining in the 2020s, returning to current levels by the end of 2020. It is predicted that it will not. According to the city of Tampere, in the 2030s.

All six of Finland’s largest cities show higher population growth in 2022 than in 2021. Preliminary data Statistics Finland recently announced.
