The total land area is 547,557 Km2 (211,413 sq. miles). 81.5 % of the population is urban (53,217,966 people in 2020) as its mentioned in France population map.

France has one of the highest life expectancies in Europe. Even though its birth rate seems pretty high compared to other European nations, this does not appear to be enough to slow down the growing trend of the French median age.
Since a few years, the population growth in France has been decreasing. In 2007, the population grew by about 0.62 percent as you can see in France population map. Ten years later, in 2017, this number only reached 0.37 percent. However, unlike the majority of European countries, France appears to have a steady fertility rate of 1.9 children per woman. This phenomenon allows France to be ranked as the most fertile country in Europe. But this cannot hide the facts that the population is getting older every year.
