According to the Cyprus statistical services the population for Cyprus in 2009 grew by 0,8% from 796,900 to 803,200 which is way under the one million mark. I was looking at a website which wrote that the population was over a million which made me go searching for this.
Other interesting numbers from the report include:
The number of deaths reached 5.182
Life expectancy is estimated at 77,9 years for males and 82,4 for females.
The number of divorces reached 1.738 from 1.639 in 2008.
