The number of people living in the grand duchy passed the 600,000 mark as of 1 January 2018, Statec said on 19 April.

The national statistics bureau said the population rose by 11,338 last year, driven by net migration of 10,548 people and by 1,911 more births than deaths.

52% of the country’s population are Luxembourgers and 48% are foreign nationals.

Luxembourg had 502,100 inhabitants in 2010.
