The State Statistics Service estimates that Ukraine’s population is 42.3 million people. During the first six months of the year, almost two people died for each baby born, the Service reports. During the first half of the year, the Service says, 11,200 people migrated out of Ukraine, three times the 2017 level. Casting doubts on the Service’s migration numbers, the state railroad recently reported that during the first half of 2018 it carried 76,000 more people out of Ukraine to the EU than into Ukraine – 187,000, versus 111,000 from the EU to here. The last census was carried out in 2001. The next one is scheduled for 2020.
