The number of marriages in Transbaikalia decreased by 17% last year compared to the previous year. The number of divorces in the region has also decreased.

Olga Koryagina, head of the regional department of the registry office, said that 2020 marriages were concluded in 5 - two thousand less than in 479. She added that, compared to 2019, the number of registrations has decreased by half.

Among the reasons for this decline, she named the fact that a small generation of the 90s is entering marriages, the postponement of registrations to a later date due to coronavirus restrictions, and the fact that 2020 was a leap year. Educational migration also influenced the statistics. The main category of men and women who get married and divorced is the age of 25–39 years.

In 2020, 4 divorces were registered, which is 829 less than in 252.

According to Zabaikalkraystat, the natural population decline in the region tripled last year. The number of deaths exceeded the number of births by 1 people, while a year ago the excess was 821 people. Last year, 608 Transbaikal residents were born, and 12 died.
