Births outstrip deaths in June

More people were born in June than died, the first such reversal since September 2013, although birth rates are higher and death rates lower during summer months.

Only 23 births more were recorded compared to the number of deaths, which was 1,201 in June.

A total of 13,831 births were recorded last year, 1,643 fewer than deaths. The last time more people were born than died in Estonia was in 2010, when the difference was 35. Before that one would have to go all the way back to 1990.

Robert, Oskar and Artjom were the most popular boys names, while Sofia, Liisa and Lisandra topped the list for girls.
