This chapter focuses on the recent demographic situation and related population trends in the 27 Member States of the European Union. Some attention will also be paid to its two Candidate Countries, Croatia and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, as well as to the EFTA Countries (Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland) and, as far as data are available, Turkey. The chapter is based on the latest available information from Eurostat, including its estimates which are known as "Nowcasts", but also on information from the United Nations and the OECD.
