Lithuanian census shows steep fall in population

Results from Lithuania's census carried out this year show that the country's population has fallen more than 10 percent over the past decade.
Statistics Lithuania says the Baltic country that borders Belarus and Poland now has 3.05 million residents, compared with more than 3.4 million in 2001.
The results published Monday confirm that rapid emigration and a falling birth rate continue to erode Lithuania's population despite membership in the European Union and quality of life improvements over the past 10 years.
The census was carried out from March to May this year.
