Some 36,130 people left Lithuania in January through October 2018 -- slightly more than the population of Marijampolė, the largest town in the southeastern part of the country.

Some 31,871 people came to live in the country during the ten months, almost twice as many as in the same period last year, with Lithuanian citizens accounting for two-thirds of the arrivals.

Lithuania's natural population growth remained negative: 24,126 babies were born in the country in the reporting period and 33,940 people died.
