How To Increase Your Population In Victoria 3

Increasing Population: The Guide

Birthrate & Mortality Rate

Your country’s birthrate and mortality rates determine how many people live there.

The Standard of Living has a significant impact on each of these variables, which are then further impacted by things like disease, employment circumstances, and living quarters. In order to grow your children’s wealth and, thus, their Standard of Living, you must ensure that all of your children can satisfy their needs with high income and benefits.

Public Healthcare Measures

You can pass the Charity Hospitals, Private Health Insurance, or Public Health Insurance legislation by going to the Health System Law group under the Laws tab. The Health System institution will be enabled by enacting any of these, and either Private or Public Health Insurance will let you add two more points to it.

You can also add an extra point for each of the Medical Degrees and Pharmaceuticals Technologies on the Society Tech Tree. A flat -5% mortality is provided at each level entered into the Health System institution, with a maximum mortality of -25%.

In essence, this reduces the likelihood that people will pass away, especially when they are younger, allowing more people to procreate and increase the population. Implementing private health insurance will also reduce mortality, but because it scales based on health, the lowest stratum won’t benefit.

On the other side, the Public Health Insurance Law offers a flat mortality reduction of 5%.

That concludes our overview of how to raise the population in Victoria 3, and you should now be able to make decisions that will help you do so.
