Moria's population of Dwarves dwindles

Event Type: Cultural/Social

Age: 3rd Age - The Kings

Year: 0001

... the halls of Khazad-dûm were too deep and strong and filled with a people too numerous and valiant for Sauron to conquer from without. Thus its wealth remained long unravished, though its people began to dwindle.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers: Durin's Folk

The Dwarves hid themselves in deep places, guarding their hoards; but when evil began to stir again and dragons reappeared, one by one their ancient treasures were plundered, and they became a wandering people. Moria for long remained secure, but its numbers dwindled until many of its vast mansions became dark and empty.
