eu-flag-reduced.pngHere and there EUAustralia has given a wrong population figure for the European Union, e.g. miscalculating the impact of newly admitted countries.

How many Europeans? 516 331 096 in the EU, according to a careful outside survey.

Estimates dated July 2006 in the CIA Factbook list the EU at 486 642 177; the then outside country of Romania (joining EU 1.1.07) at 22 303 552, and Bulgaria (joining 1.1.07) 7 385 367. (https:www.cia.gov/cia/publications/factbook/print/ee.html)
