According to MONSTAT, the people of Tivci have not divorced since the beginning of the year. Although at the level of the first eight months the natural increase in our city, as in almost all Montenegrin municipalities, was negative, the Tivat population is more numerous by 29 people due to the difference in the number of immigrants and emigrants, according to the report on population movements within Montenegro.
During the first eight months of 2021, 4554 newborns were born in Montenegro, of which 107 in Tivat. Among the total of 5918 deceased, 132 were our fellow citizens, according to the MONSTAT Monthly Statistical Review for October 2021.
For the second year in a row, Montenegro recorded a negative rate of natural increase.
