The economical and political changes of the last decades have had a big influence on the demographical situation in Lithuania. The population of Lithuania has had a decreasing tendency. This process was influenced by emigration at the beginning of the last decade and a bit later - by a natural decrease. This tendency has continued for the last years because of a low birth-rate.
