Luxembourg’s population exceeds 576,000 people, including nearly 46.7% without a Luxembourg passport, and that proportion exceeds 69% in the capital. The majority of foreigners are nationals of member states of the European Union.

By virtue of the composition of its population, Luxembourg thus differs greatly from the other countries of Europe.

As other countries in the industrialised world, Luxembourg is confronted by the phenomenon of general aging of the population, a phenomenon associated with profound social upheaval. The average age of people living in Luxembourg is constantly increasing.

In Luxembourg, lifestyles are changing at a pace comparable to that in surrounding countries: youth is becoming more international in its outlook, religion plays a less important role and family lifestyles are adjusting to new social and population trends.
