population will decline in the next twenty years. This decline will be driven
by extremely low birth rates, meaning that deaths will exceed births by some
margin. Natural population decline will be offset somewhat by positive net
migration. The population is ageing steadily and life expectancy is set to
rise. In 2030, Budapest will still be the largest city in the country and all
but one of the ten largest cities will grow between 2010 and 2030.
