This insight will serve to highlight the trend experienced by the Romanian population, since 1990 until present, focusing on two main dimensions, one that takes into account the demographic aspects and the other that consider the economic side. In first part, the article talks about the problem raised by declining birth rate which leads to a negative natural balance and a long-term damage concerning young workforce. The second part brings forward the problem of emigration which influences the rate of change and also population composition in Romania. A pertinent question is "How did it get here?" and which is the real impact of this behaviour adopted by many citizens.
