Abstract: On 1 January 2005, the population of the European Union (EU25) was estimated at 459,5 million, compared to 457,2 million on 1 January 2004. The population of the EU-25 increased by 2,3 million in 2004, an annual rate of 0,5%, mainly due to net migration of 1,9 million, while the natural increase was 0,4 million. In 2004, the population increased in most European Union Member States. The largest increases were in Cyprus (+25,4 per 1000), Ireland (+20,0%o) and Spain (+16,2%o). The population fell in Lithuania (-6,0%o), Latvia (-5,5%o), Estonia (-3,0%o), Hungary (-l,9%o), Germany and Poland (both -0,4%o). The share of persons aged 65 and over was 17,0% of the total population in 2005, compared to 15,0% in 1995. Projections for 2050 indicate that, in the EU-25 , the number of persons aged 65 and over might rise from 75 million in 2005 to nearly 135 million in 2050. The figures come from the Statistical Office of the European Communities point to that in 2005 about 197,5 million people resident in the European Union held a job or had a business activity, of which 44,1% were women. The employment rate, which measures the share of employed people in population aged 15 to 64 years, stood at 63,8% in 2005. It was 3,2 percentage points below the 2001 Stockholm European Council target for 2005. The Lisbon European Council (March 2000) set long-term targets for employment rates for 2010: 70,0% for the population aged 15-64 and 60,0% for women of the same age group. The 2001 Stockholm European Council set mid-term targets to be reached in 2005: 67,0% for the total employment rate and 57,0% for the female employment rate. The female employment rate in 2005 reached 56,3% in the EU-25 (0,7 % p'oints below the Stockholm mid- term target). This is the result of continuous increase in female participation in employment since 1997
