  • Population forecast

    Population forecasts have been calculated for the city of Wolfsburg since 2002. The population forecasts of the city of Wolfsburg show the development of the population and the age structure for the respective forecast period. The underlying assumptions are based on population movements (births, deaths, inflows and outflows) and residential construction projects. The forecast is based on the "if-then" principle, i.e. only if all assumptions materialize will the population develop as calculated. In Wolfsburg's city administration, the forecast is used as a strategic management and controlling tool and as a basis for investment and infrastructure planning in various business areas.

    Due to the changed framework conditions caused by the consequences of the Corona pandemic and the Ukraine war, the updating of the population forecast was delayed. Only when the effects on inflows and outflows, and in particular the influx of refugees from Ukraine, were foreseeable was it possible to recalculate.

    The starting date of the current "Population Forecast 2022" for the city of Wolfsburg is December 31, 2021. At the level of the city as a whole, forecast data was calculated for each year until 2027. In terms of methodology, the population forecast can be described as a year-by-year, location-specific projection. It was prepared by the City of Wolfsburg in the Data, Strategies, Urban Development Department using the SIKURS program. Based on the population development of the past five years (2017-2021), the forecast extrapolates this development into the future with modified migration assumptions. Population movements, housing projects and, in the case of in-migration, the influx of refugees from Ukraine in particular, were taken into account. The population forecast of the city of Wolfsburg focuses on the assumptions with the highest probability of occurrence."

  • Migration motive survey 2018

    Every year, a large number of people move to the city of Wolfsburg and just as many leave. Through population statistics, the city does know how many people move from A to B each year and also, for example, which age groups move. However, it knows little about their motives or why they migrate. Therefore, from October to December 2018, around 9,000 citizens were contacted who had moved to Wolfsburg in the past two years or who had left Wolfsburg for the surrounding area, the Hanover region or Berlin.

    The city's main aim in conducting the survey was to gain new insights into Wolfsburg's housing market. To this end, respondents were asked, among other things, about the reasons for their move, their housing preferences and living conditions, and how the search for housing had progressed. The good response rate of 24% shows that there is still a great deal of interest among households that have moved away in developments in Wolfsburg.

  • Citizen survey on quality of life in Wolfsburg

    Following a Europe-wide study, the IFAK Institute conducted a telephone-based citizen survey on the quality of life in German cities on behalf of the KOSIS "Urban Audit" community from October 2018 to January 2019.

    A total of 24 German cities participated in this survey. The participating cities include Braunschweig, Dresden, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt am Main, Ingolstadt, Nuremberg, Osnabrück, Stuttgart and Wolfsburg.

    The aim of the study is to determine the citizens' assessment of the quality of life in the participating cities and to present it in a German (and European) comparison. This provides the city of Wolfsburg with important information about the areas in which citizens are satisfied with their city and where there may still be deficits. Since Wolfsburg has already participated for the second time after 2015, comparisons over time are now also possible. You can view the results below.

    Once again, we would like to thank all respondents who, by taking part, have made an important contribution to improving the quality of life in Wolfsburg

    Do you have any questions about the citizens' survey? Then please contact the Data, Strategies, Urban Development department(e-mail to umfragen@stadt.wolfsburg.de).
