According to the German statistical office, on Dec. 31, 2009 the German population was between 81.7 and 81.8 million people. In 2009 there was an excess of deaths over births that was between 180,000 and 190,000. Net migration was also negative, between -20,000 and -70,000. So in total Germany lost between 200,000 and 260,000 inhabitants in 2009.

Meanwhile in 2009 the French population increased by 356,000 people (excess of births over deaths of 284,000 plus a net migration of +72,000), with the population of France reaching 65.45 million on Jan. 1, 2010. In other words in 2009 the population discrepancy between France and Germany was reduced by something between 556,000 and 616,000 people. If the gap is reduced every year by the same amount of people, it would take 28 years for France and Germany to have the same population.
