Statistics Iceland publishes every year updated short (5 years) and long term (50 years) population projections. According to the medium projection variant, the Icelandic population will grow, from 329 to 437 thousand persons during the next 50 years, due to both migration and natural increase. The high variant predicts a population of 513 thousand while the low variant projects to 372 thousand inhabitants. The projection variants are built according to different assumptions about economic growth, fertility and migration levels.
