switzerland less populated in 2050?

nice atlas online.
according to this information the population of switzerland is expected to decrease in the next 50 years. is this a mistake or is this an actual tendency due to the birthrate being lower than the deathrate. i would expect that this estimate does not take migration into consideration.
