On 1 January 2014, the population of the European Union was estimated to stand at 507.4 million, compared with 505.7 million one year before. The population growth is due to a natural increase of 80,000 and a net migration of 700,000, while the remainder can be explained by statistical adjustments, according to EU statistics office Eurostat.
