Yes, that's a negative number, meaning that if it weren't for migrations Germany (like several other industrialized nations) would be declining in population.

Yep it is the immigration flow that is maintains Germany’s population.
The United Nations Population Fund lists Germany as host to the third-highest number of international migrants worldwide, behind the United States and Saudi Arabia.
In 2019, 588,401 (75.6%) children were born to mothers with German citizenship, while 189,689 (24.4%) children were born to mothers with foreign citizenship.

According to current projections, Germany’s population is expected to peak at the end of 2021 with 83.9 million people. By the end of the century, Germany’s population is expected to fall to 74.73 million people. Because of this, Great Britain and France will both surpass Germany’s population.

Germany will need to concentrate educating those immigrant children to take over the upcoming shortage of skilled job workers.
