Per day in the Netherlands there are around 465 babies born and an average of 381 people die. Since 1900 the Dutch population has grown from 5 to 17 million people! That is a lot more, but the Netherlands has not become any larger in years. Where do all of these people live? Is it still possible to find a quiet place somewhere in the country?
