According to the medium projection variant, the Icelandic population will grow, from 332 to 442 thousand persons during the next 50 years, due to both migration and natural increase. The high variant predicts a population of 523 thousand while the low variant projects to 369 thousand inhabitants. The projection variants are built according to different assumptions about economic growth, fertility and migration levels.
