Does the Latest Trend Confirm There Will Be 10.000 Monegasques, Soon?

When will there be 10.000 Monegasques? If you look at the latest statistics from the Monaco Statistics Institute (IMSEE) the Monegasque population just reached almost 9.700 people or to be exact 9686 at the end of 2022. But the other important number is how much it increased in a year. At the end of 2021 there were just over 9.600 Monegasques, so the increase in the latest year is just under 1% (0.8%). Another four years at this rate and there will be 10.000 Monegasques.

But the natural growth in the Monegasque population from 2021 to 2022 is actually less than 1% if you peek beneath the numbers. Because each year there are not a huge number of births – the magic number is around 100 – and people unfortunately do eventually die. The 92 births in 2022 hardly outstrip the 85 deaths.
