The population of France in 2007
The population of metropolitan France (mainland and Corsica), which stood at 61.9 million on 1 January 2008, grew by 0.5% in 2007. The surplus of births over deaths accounts for four-fifths of this increase, and net migration, i.e. the difference between migrant arrivals and departures, for the remaining one-fifth. Fertility stood at 1.96 children per woman on average in 2007 and remains among the highest in Europe, while life expectancy exceeds 81 years for both sexes combined. Four civil partnerships were registered for ten marriages, and one child in two was born to unmarried parents.
