Demographic Statistics

About the Demographic Statistics

Data provided include national population estimates, which are updated at least biannually, as are medium-term population estimated up to 2050. Whenever new demographic information becomes available from population censuses and household surveys, new national population projections are produced, and annual estimates are recalibrated.

Basic demographic statistics include national population numbers disaggregated by 5 year age groups and sex; age dependency and sex ratios; crude birth, death and migration rates; annual population growth rates, including rural and urban growth rates; and key demographic indicators, like fertility, mortality and migrations rates. Additional data, like more detailed vital statistics, can be found on the NMDI website
